Waiting on Wednesday - The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Summary (By Goodreads)

For the past five years, Hayley Kincaid and her father, Andy, have been on the road, never staying long in one place as he struggles to escape the demons that have tortured him since his return from Iraq. Now they are back in the town where he grew up so Hayley can attend school. Perhaps, for the first time, Hayley can have a normal life, put aside her own painful memories, even have a relationship with Finn, the hot guy who obviously likes her but is hiding secrets of his own.

Will being back home help Andy’s PTSD, or will his terrible memories drag him to the edge of hell, and drugs push him over? The Impossible Knife of Memory is Laurie Halse Anderson at her finest: compelling, surprising, and impossible to put down.

To me, Laurie Halse Anderson is like the Jodi Piccoult of Young Adult titles.  She takes real situations and makes them gritty, readable and unputdownable.  Can't wait for this one to be released January 7th.

  1. I haven't picked up any of Laurie Halse Anderson's books yet, but I've seen so many fantastic things about them. I think I'm definitely going to have to pick up one of her books soon and I might just have to start with this one since it sounds really intriguing.
    Great pick!
