[Waiting On Wednesday] #22 - I Was Here

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming books that we eagerly anticipate and cannot wait to get here!

"I Was Here" - Gayle Forman

I Was HereCody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

WHY AM I WAITING ON IT?

Another Gayle Forman's book? Ummm YES PLEASE!!! Really hoping to get ARC of this one because waiting until January 2015 to get my hands on is just too impossible. I just... totally can't. I really can't! :P

  4. Until I read If I Stay, I probably would not have taken much notice of this author and her books. But since I loved that one (and the movie), I am definitely adding this one to my list. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
