Waiting On Wednesday: The Leading Edge of Now by Marci Lyn Curtis

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read!

Emily's Waiting on:


Title: The Leading Edge of Now
Author: Marci Lyn Curtis
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary 
Publisher: Kids Can Press 
Publication Date: Sept. 4th, 2018

Summary: Just when Grace is beginning to get used to being an orphan, her estranged uncle suddenly comes forward to claim her. That might have been okay if he'd spoken to her even once since her father died. Or if moving in with Uncle Rusty didn't mean returning to New Harbor. 
Grace once spent the best summers of her life in New Harbor. Now the place just reminds her of all she's lost: her best friend, her boyfriend and any memory of the night that changed her forever. 
People say the truth will set you free, but Grace isn't sure about that. Once she starts looking for it, the truth about that night is hard to find --- and what happens when her healing hurts the people she cares about the most? 
Marci Lyn Curtis, the critically acclaimed author of The One Thing, has crafted an honest and emotional story that will resonate with the wide range of readers impacted by sexual assault. 
Sexual assault does not define this story, however, just as it does not define Grace. Wry humor and true love emerge as Grace, like many in the #MeToo era, seeks to find her truth, face her truth, and speak her truth.
I was recently given the change to read an ARC of this book and I'm so excited to start reading! The story centers around Grace returning to the town where she spent her summers with an uncle she barely knows. I'm excited to dive into Grace's world as she navigates her semi new life and follower her on her healing journey. I'm sure I won't be able to put this down so be on the lookout for an ARC review!
