Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Playing Hurt
by Holly Schindler (March 1, 2011)

Star basketball player Chelsea "Nitro" Keyes had a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.

That summer, Chelsea's dad hires Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player and "boot camp" trainer, to work with her at a northern Minnesota lake resort. As they grow close, Chelsea finds that Clint's haunted by his own tragedy. Will their romance end up hurting them all over again—or finally heal their heartbreak?

This has all the ingredients for a delicious YA contemporary novel: damaged girl + hot new boy + a summer spent together.  I love me some young romances!  Definitely adding this book to my TBR pile for 2011 :-)  I really like the cover of this book too - the softness & innocence it portrays.  It just leaves an overall good feeling.

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday??
