Jessica's Waiting on:

Title: Our Broken Pieces
Author: Sarah White
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: August 8th, 2017 

Summary: The only thing worse than having your boyfriend dump you is having him dump you for your best friend. For Everly Morgan the betrayal came out of nowhere. One moment she had what seemed like the perfect high school relationship, and the next, she wanted to avoid the two most important people in her life. Every time she sees them kiss in the hallways her heart breaks a little more. The last thing on Everly’s mind is getting into another relationship, but when she meets Gabe in her therapist’s waiting room she can’t deny their immediate connection. Somehow he seems to understand Everly in a way that no one else in her life does, and maybe it’s because Gabe also has experience grappling with issues outside of his control. Just because they share so many of the same interests and there is an undeniable spark between them doesn’t mean Everly wants anything more than friendship. After all, when you only barely survived your last breakup, is it really worth risking your heart again?
I was first drawn to this book because of the summary itself -- a story where a girl loses her boyfriend to her best friend? It's not necessarily a new concept, but it's always a messy one. It looks like Everly then goes on to meet a new guy and learn to get over her heartbreak, which is an important story that I feel like a lot of teenage girls can relate to, so it's definitely a book I'm interested in reading. Learning to recover after you've been hurt by those who are closest to you seems like a premise that I'd like to explore more, and I think that this book will be the perfect place for that.
