Waiting on Wednesday: Before You Go


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's pre-publication can't wait to read selection is:


Before You Go
by James Preller
Expected Publication Date: July 17, 2012,
 Feiwel and Friends


The summer before his senior year, Jude (yes, he’s named after the Beatles song) gets his first job, falls in love for the first time, and starts to break away from his parents. Jude’s house is kept dark, and no one talks much—it’s been that way since his little sister drowned in a swimming pool seven years ago when Jude was supposed to be watching her.

Now, Jude is finally, finally starting to live. Really live. And then, life spins out of control. Again. 

Acclaimed author James Preller explores life, death, love, faith, and resilience in his first young adult novel that will grip readers from the book’s dramatic first few pages to its emotional end.
