Waiting on Wednesday: Dancing at the Pity Party by Tyler Feder

"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! 

Title: Dancing at the Pity Party
Author: Tyler Feder
Publisher: Dial Books
Hardcover, 208 Pages
Publication Date: April 14th, 2020
Summary: From before her mother's first oncology appointment through the stages of her cancer to the funeral, sitting shiva, and afterward, when she must try to make sense of her life as a motherless daughter, Tyler Feder tells her story in this graphic novel that is full of piercing--but also often funny--details. She shares the important post-death firsts, such as celebrating holidays without her mom, the utter despair of cleaning out her mom's closet, ending old traditions and starting new ones, and the sting of having the "I've got to tell Mom about this" instinct and not being able to act on it. This memoir, bracingly candid and sweetly humorous, is for anyone struggling with loss who just wants someone to get it.

I first found this book when I was doing some research about new graphic novels that I wanted to pick up, and this one caught my attention from the very beginning. Not only does the cover itself seem really sweet and beautifully drawn, but the story seems like just the perfect amount of comforting and uplifting that I like to read. So I can't wait to have it in my hands next month!
