"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I or us, readers are eagerly anticipating. Here's my pick this week ...
Title: A MILLION MILES AWAY
Publication Date: July 7, 2015
Publisher: Little, Brown
Twin sisters Kelsey and Michelle Maxfield look identical -- but they couldn't be more different. Kelsey is the captain of the dance team and loves her cute college boyfriend, Davis. Michelle is a free-spirited artist and flits from one guy to the next, the latest a soldier recently deployed to Afghanistan. Despite their differences, Kelsey and Michelle can't live without each other -- until, in an instant, everything changes.
When Michelle dies in a car crash, Kelsey is left without her other half. As the only one who knows about her sister's boyfriend, Peter, Kelsey takes it upon herself to find him and tell him what happened to Michelle. But when she finally connects with Peter online, he thinks that Kelsey is Michelle and says that seeing her is the one thing keeping him alive. Caught up in the moment, Kelsey can't bear to break his heart with the truth, so she lets Peter believe that she is Michelle.
Kelsey keeps up the act, pretending to be her sister, and soon she can't deny that she's falling, hard, for the one boy she shouldn't want.
Lara Avery delivers a breathtaking story of love and loss that is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.
I'm on a blogging funk for the past couple of weeks now and I wasn't even planning on making this post. But I simply cannot not blog and share about this very intriguing book that I JUST NOW stumbled across. Did the synopsis spike your interest and curiosity? Because right now, this book is all I can think about and my head's just exploding with questions and theories on how this will go down. How will Kelsey tell Peter that she isn't her sister, Michelle? How exactly will Peter find out about it? How will Peter react? Questions. Questions. Questions, please stop.
Anyways, I love the sound this book and I'm very curious as to how everything will play out in the story. I just hope it will live up to my expectations. What do you guys think? Are you adding A Million Miles Away in your to-read list? :)
