This week I'm picking:
Let Me Walk You Home by Rachel Dukes
Expected publication: February 9th 2016 by Amulet Books
Amanda and Eric, blissfully happy and soon to be engaged, have the kind of romance that seems charmed. Amanda’s home life is tumultuous at best, so her close relationship with Eric’s family—particularly with her “surrogate mother”—feels like perfection.
Then one shocking incident destroys everything. When Eric’s brother, Scott, commits an unspeakable act against Amanda, he challenges familial relationships and divides friendships at their picturesque New England university. Eric and Amanda’s formerly airtight romance begins to falter. Despite their enduring love, the pain Scott caused threatens to destroy them.
It’s up to Amanda to channel the courage she needs to thrive. But in the wake of events both devastating and uncontrollable, how can a victimized young woman reclaim happiness?
Why I'm Waiting:
The description sounds absolutely heartbreaking, but I am still very intrigued by this book. It looks like it will be a tough yet beautiful story. I don't often read graphic novels, but this one really has me intrigued. Plus it's wordless, so the pictures really have to tell the story.
