Waiting On Wednesday [@Kellyannfiore @HarperTeen]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:


Cecelia Price killed her brother. At least, that’s what the police and the district attorney are saying. And although Cecelia is now locked up and forced into treatment, she knows the real story is much more complicated.

Cyrus wasn’t always the drug-addled monster he’d become. He was a successful athlete, but when an injury forced him off the soccer field and onto pain medication, his life became a blur of anger, addiction, and violence. All CeCe could do was stand by and watch, until she realized one effective way to take away her brother’s drugs while earning the money she needed for college: selling the pills.

Soon, CeCe becomes part drug dealer, part honor student. But even when all she wants is to make things right, she learns that sometimes the best intentions lead to the worst possible outcome.

Thicker than Water is an unforgettable dark, harrowing look into the disturbing truth of drug addiction and the desperate love of a sister watching her brother deteriorate before her eyes.

I love that Thicker than Water is not just about Cecelia Price who supposedly killed her brother. It's about the series of events, decisions and reactions that led to that point.

It sounds like a unique story that follows events that are all very plausible, but lead to somewhere the characters never could have imagined. I'm really looking forward to reading about CeCe and Cyrus, what their relationship is like - as well as what it was like - and finding out the truth behind CeCe 'killing' her brother.

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
