This week I am waiting on....

By: Carol Lynch Williams
Release Date: May 1, 2012
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

From Goodreads:

In one moment
it is over.
In one moment
it is gone.
The morning grows
thin, grey
and our lives-
how they were-
have vanished.
Our lives have changed
when I walk in
on Lizzie
my sister
holding a shotgun.
Twelve year old girl Hope's life is turned upside down when her older sister Lizzie becomes an elective mute and is institutionalized after trying to kill herself. Ever since their dad died Hope and Lizzie have relied on each other from a young age. Their mother is a reluctant and unreliable parent at best, and it's up to Hope to discover the terrible secret that's eating away at Lizzie before it's too late. 


  1. I looooove Carol Lynch Williams, and this cover is so gorgeous.

    But that synopsis, the one from Goodreads, is the synopsis of her other book, Glimpse :S I have no idea what Waiting is actually about.

  2. OH yeah this sounds incredibly good! Great pick!
