"Waiting On" Wednesday (#95) When We Collided by Emery Lord


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:

When We Collided by
Expected publication: April 5th 2016 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens

From Goodreads: 

Meet Vivi and Jonah: A girl and a boy whose love has the power save or destroy them.

Vivi and Jonah couldn't be more different. Vivi craves anything joyful or beautiful that life can offer. Jonah has been burdened by responsibility for his family ever since his father died. As summer begins, Jonah resigns himself to another season of getting by. Then Vivi arrives, and suddenly life seems brighter and better. Jonah is the perfect project for Vivi, and things finally feel right for Jonah. Their love is the answer to everything. But soon Vivi's zest for life falters, as her adventurousness becomes true danger-seeking. Jonah tries to keep her safe, but there's something important Vivi hasn't told him.

Perfect for fans of E. Lockhart and Jandy Nelson, When We Collided is a powerful story of two teens whose love is put to the test by forces beyond their control.

Why I'm Waiting:

I have really enjoyed Emery Lord's first two books.  They are perfect contemporaries, so I have high hopes for this one.  She is quickly becoming one of my favorite contemporary authors.  I am also very curious to see what's going on with Vivi.
