Waiting on Wednesday - Elevated by Elana Johnson

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: Goodreads

The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she's been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

I tried to get into Elana's series - Possession but it did not captivate me the way I had hoped.  However, I am not discriminatory and I enjoy trying out different series from authors that I am familiar with even if I didn't mesh with their previous novels.  Elevated is Elana's most recent series.  Cute scenario - being trapped in an elevator with someone you find it hard to be around in the first place.  I am wondering how long it will last and if they will be in the elevator for the whole book....kinda like being on a deserted island with a volleyball....Tom Hanks made it last for over 2 hours on film.  Can Elana tug at my heartstrings for 300 pages?
