This week, my WoW pick is…..

Waiting On WednesdayOther Broken Things by Christa Desir
Published by Simon & Schuster on January 12, 2016
Goodreads

Nat's not an alcoholic. She doesn't have a problem. Everybody parties, everybody does stupid things, like get in their car when they can barely see. Still, with six months of court-ordered AA meetings required, her days of vodka-filled water bottles are over.

Unfortunately her old friends want the party girl or nothing. Even her up-for-anything ex seems more interested in rehashing the past than actually helping Nat.

But then a recovering alcoholic named Joe inserts himself into Nat’s life and things start looking up. Joe is funny, smart, and calls her out in a way no one ever has.

He’s also older. A lot older.

Nat’s connection to Joe is overwhelming but so are her attempts to fit back into her old world, all while battling the constant urge to crack a bottle and blur that one thing she's been desperate to forget.

Now in order to make a different kind of life, Natalie must pull together her broken parts and learn to fight for herself.

 

Christa’s books are always thought-provoking and I am looking forward to reading this one!

  1. I have never read a book addressing the subject of teenagers with an alcohol addiction. This is an important and, perhaps, provocative subject for some I am sure. A must add to the wish list title for me this one 🙂

  2. This sounds really interesting, and I love the cover. I hope you get to read it soon. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW earlier. 🙂
