Jessica's Waiting on:

Title: If Only
Author: Jennifer Gilmore 
Publisher: HarperTeen 
Publication Date: July 31st, 2018

Summary: BEFORE: When Bridget imagined her life at sixteen, it didn’t look like this. She didn’t think that her boyfriend would dump her for another girl. And she certainly didn’t think that she would be pregnant. With just a few months until she gives birth, Bridget must envision an entirely new future—one for her baby. But as she sifts through the many paths and the many people who want to parent her child, she can’t help but feel that there is no right decision. AFTER: Ivy doesn’t know much about her birth mother. She knows that she is now the same age Bridget was when she placed Ivy for adoption. She knows that Bridget was the one who named her. And she knows that fifteen years ago Bridget disappeared from Ivy’s and her adoptive moms’ lives. Ivy wants to discover more about herself, but as she goes to find Bridget, she can’t help but feel that the risks might far outweigh the benefits of knowing where she comes from and why her birth mother chose to walk away.
Anyone that knows me knows that I'm a total sucker for stories that ask the hard questions, and that is exactly what If Only is. There seems to be a whole lot of mystery and disappearance going on here as well, which immediately grabbed my interest. What's going to happen? I can't wait to know!!! Not to mention this cover -- I love the simplicity of it while also incorporating a bunch of colors and a painting-like appearance that keeps it from looking too plain. I'm really excited to add this book to my TBR and will be eagerly awaiting its publication!
