Waiting On Wednesday is a meme where you basically share an upcoming book that you’re excited to read. It’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine by Jill.
The book I’m waiting on today is: My Life After Now by Jessica Verdi.
Lucy just had the worst week ever. Seriously, mega bad. And suddenly, it’s all too much—she wants out. Out of her house, out of her head, out of her life. She wants to be a whole new Lucy. So she does something the old Lucy would never dream of.
And now her life will never be the same. Now, how will she be able to have a boyfriend? What will she tell her friends? How will she face her family? Now, every moment is a precious gift. She never thought being positive could be so negative. But now, everything’s different…because now she’s living with HIV.
Of course, how could I not talk about the cover of this book first? I absolutely adore it. It’s a girl in a dress, yes, but it’s not your typical girl in a dress, and I love that! The girl is facing away, and she’s more to the side, which makes it much different from those typical covers. Also, I like the concept of this one, since it’s never been done before. So many people don’t understand this disease, and I think it’s great that the author is going to be taking out some of the stigma, I hope.
This book will be released on April 1st, 2013.
