This week I'm picking:
Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts
Expected publication: November 10th 2015 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
First came love, then came marriage, and then...
For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.
Why I'm Waiting:
This looks like it will be totally unique. I don't know if I've ever read a YA book, where not only does the main character get married so young, but becomes a widow. Not only that, but there would be enough to form a club? Or is it a club of one? Either way, I'm intrigued.
