Waiting on Wednesday #5 - Don't Breathe A Word

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  Basically, it’s a chance to highlight one of the many books that you want to read but hasn’t been released just yet.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick for this week is....

Title: Don't Breathe A Word

Author: Holly Cupala

Publication Date: September 20, 2011

From the Goodreads website....

It's tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. . . .

In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda's death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister's world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own.

When two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears, Miranda is stripped of her former life. She must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister's demons and her own.

In this powerful debut novel, stunning new talent Holly Cupala illuminates the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future.

I have no ever loving idea why all of my recent WOW picks have been YA.  Maybe it's a testament to just how strong the books that are being published and written for the YA audience is.  This book sounds amazing and it's a bit different in that it's about real life issues and not either a re-telling of a story or in the paranormal category.

What is your Waiting on Wednesday pick this week?
