Waiting on Wednesday (22)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

My choice this week is...

Gone, Gone, Gone by Hannah Moskowitz!

It's a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge, trying to make sense of the random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.

Craig's crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him...and if he'll do it again...and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.

Lio feels most alive when he's with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable, and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.

“Written with depth and heart and a quirky sweetness that I just adore. These are characters I will never forget. Fans of Will Grayson, Will Grayson will love this book.” –Amy Reed, author of Beautiful and Clean
(Summary from Goodreads)

I only found this one today while browsing Goodreads, and it sounds right up my alley - beautiful, mysterious, and quite possibly heartbreaking! I haven't read any of Moskowitz's other books though. Have you? If so, what did you think?

Hannah Moskowitz's Gone, Gone, Gone will be published 17 April 2012.

  11. @YA Book Lover Yes, me too! I can't think of many 9/11 books...one I really enjoyed was David Levithan's Love is the Higher Law, also LGBT. I can't think of any others right now though! There must be some, right?

    Thanks for following, I really appreciate it! :-D
