Waiting on Wednesday #4

Hi Everyone!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Each week bloggers highlight the books that they are highly anticipating.

I actually remembered to do a W.O.W post today, yay! This week I am anxiously awaiting on This Side of Salvation!!

Title:  This Side of Salvation

Author: Jeri Smith-Ready

Publisher: Simon Pulse/Simon and Schuster

Release Date: April 1st

Goodreads Synopsis:
Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.

Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.

But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined..

Ok I am HUGE Jeri Smith-Ready fan every since I read Shade! That Shade Trilogy is absolutely amazing so I have high hopes for for this book. April is way too far away! The blurb is so intriguing and I know I'll be in for an emotional adventure.

What are you waiting on this week?
