Waiting On Wednesday #139: TRUEST by Jackie Lea Sommers (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

by Jackie Lea Sommers
Expected release date: September 1st, 2015
Published by Katherine Tegen Books (HarperCollins)
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary 
Format: Hardcover, eBook


Silas Hart has seriously shaken up Westlin Beck's small-town life. Brand new to town, Silas is different then the guys in Green Lake. He's curious, poetic, philosophical, maddening - and really, really cute. 

But, Silas has a sister - and she has a secret. 

And West has a boyfriend. 

And life in Green Lake is about to change forever. 

TRUEST is a stunning, addictive debut. Romantic, fun, tender and satisfying, it asks as many questions as it answers. 

Why I'm waiting for TRUEST... 

First of all, the cover is STUNNING!!!
And even though the summary sounds a bit confusing to me, it seems that the book is from West's point-of-view... Silas is the new boy in town causing a bit of a stir... and that Silas' sister is a whole other person, not West - am I right??? 

Second of all, it sounds like a deep-thinking, emotional, pull-at-your-heartstrings contemporary - I love these kinds of books!

And lastly, the reviews coming in for this book are mostly 5-stars!!!
Which is a bit intimidating because my expectations are going to be high! 

SO, what are you waiting for this week???


  1. I'm very intrigued by this one as well. The description is kind of vague but it's enough to make me want to read it. And, yeah...that cover is stunning. Great pick!
