Waiting on Wednesday

The Everafter by Amy Huntley

A haunting and hopeful debut teen novel in the vein of The Lovely Bones about a girl who revisits random moments in her life through the objects she's lost—and learns surprising things about her life and death.

I haven't been able to find out a lot about this book but between the cover and that short summary, it seems like it could be an....almost poetic (I'm not saying ethereal again because my brain's almsot spitting that out on default me thinks) book that might end up being a lot heavier than I think but either way seems like something I would really, really enjoy reading.

And don't we all think about things we've lost over time-be they people or objects-and how things might be different if they were still around or how they affected us/what they meant to us?

  1. Sounds like Lovely Bones meets Elsewhere (by Gabrielle Zevin). I reviewed Elsewhere a while back (http://talesofwhimsy.blogspot.com/2009/07/elsewhere.html).

    I'll have to check out your Elsewhere book...I have the book but I haven't read it yet--and I've been meaning to read Lovely Bones for a while now. Thanks for the link!

    I'm going to read If I Stay soon...I hadn't thought about that comparison.
