Next-door neighbors and ex-best friends Hannah and Emory haven’t spoken in months. Not since the fight—the one where they said things they couldn’t take back.
Now, Emory is fine-tuning her UCLA performing arts application and trying to make the most of the months she has left with her boyfriend, Luke, before they head off to separate colleges. Meanwhile, Hannah’s strong faith is shaken when her family’s financial problems come to light, and she finds herself turning to unexpected places—and people—for answers to the difficult questions she’s suddenly facing.
No matter how much Hannah and Emory desperately want to bridge the thirty-six steps between their bedroom windows, they can’t. Not anymore.
Until their paths cross unexpectedly when, one night, Hannah finds Luke doubled over in his car outside her house. In the aftermath of the accident, all three struggle to understand what happened in their own ways. But when a devastating secret about Hannah and Emory’s argument ultimately comes to light, they must all reexamine the things they hold true.
In alternating chapters, a skeptic and a believer piece together the story of their complex relationship and the boy caught somewhere in the middle. New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone deftly crafts a moving portrait of faith, love, and friendship.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are most excited about. This week’s I-can’t-wait book is Little Do We Know by Tamara Ireland Stone. This young adult fiction will be out May 29, 2018, by Disney Hyperion.
Waiting on Wednesday
Why We’re Waiting
I’ve been hooked on contemporaries these days and I can’t wait to see what this one has in store for me. Stories of friendship have a huge impact on the lives of readers. I can’t wait to see the journey Hannah and Emory take. I really hope this jumps between their points of view so we can truly see everything between them. I’m interested to see how Luke’s story progresses and can’t wait to find out all of the drama. Bring on the friendship, love, and loss in this book!
So, what book are YOU waiting for this week?
