Waiting on Wednesday {23}

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

Then I Met My Sister
by Christine Hurley Deriso (April 8, 2011)

"Shannon has been the backdrop of my life since the moment I was born."

Summer Stetson lives inside a shrine to her dead sister. Eclipsed by Shannon's greatness, Summer feels like she's a constant disappointment to her controlling, Type A momzilla and her all-too-quiet dad. Her best friend Gibson believes Summer's C average has more to do with rebelliousness than smarts, but she knows she can never measure up academically or otherwise.

On her birthday, Summer receives a secret gift from her aunt; Shannon's diary. Suddenly, the one-dimensional vision of her sister becomes all too solid. Is this love-struck, mom-bashing badass the same Shannon everyone raves about? Determined to understand her troubled sister, Summer dives headfirst down a dark rabbit hole and unearths painful family secrets. Each revelation brings Summer closer to the mysterious and liberating truth about her family and herself. {taken from}

I love a good book filled with secrets & mystery!  The cover is what grabbed my attention first, though.  Is it just me or does that look like a body bag to you?!  This book comes out in just a little over a month! Yippee!

What are you "waiting on" this Wednesday??



  1. I'm not sure what she's standing behind or in...but I don't see body bag. Watch, I'll be the only one who thinks it isn't a body bag, haha.

    Anyway, the cover is also the first reason I wanted to read this book!

  2. This sounds like a great book! Will put it on my tbr. Nice pick!

  3. I have this one on my list too, I really love the cover even though it's a little creepy I think it's kind of beautiful. The synopsis sounds amazing and I love sister stories.

  4. This sounds really good! I haven't heard of it before, but will be adding it to my Goodreads! Nice pick!

  5. This cover really is cool. It's like they took an ordinary stock photo and make it special. Great pick!


  6. I sort of see the body bag, but I wouldn't have immediately looked at it and thought that. But, great pick, G! I didn't know much about this one and now I'm excited for it :) Thanks for sharing!

    Check out what I'm waiting for this week :)

  7. The cover is pretty but always kind of creeps me out at the same time...yep, I'm getting the body bag vibe as well - or she's getting swallowed up by something. Neither one is very pleasant LOL!

  8. Definitely adding to my list--sounds like a great mystery!

  9. I echo Cynthia and Danya. This cover creeps me out. When I first saw it, I thought someone was being sewn up/stitched inside of a body. I was all...HOLY MOTHER.
