I am super excited to read...
Underwater by Marisa Reichardt
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux
Published Date: 12 January 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository
Morgan didn’t mean to
do anything wrong that day. Actually, she meant to do something right.
But her kind act inadvertently played a role in a deadly tragedy. In
order to move on, Morgan must learn to forgive—first someone who did
something that might be unforgivable, and then, herself.
Morgan can’t move on. She can’t even move beyond the front door of the
apartment she shares with her mother and little brother. Morgan feels
like she’s underwater, unable to surface. Unable to see her friends.
Unable to go to school.
When it seems Morgan can’t hold her
breath any longer, a new boy moves in next door. Evan reminds her of the
salty ocean air and the rush she used to get from swimming. He might be
just what she needs to help her reconnect with the world outside.
is a powerful, hopeful debut novel about redemption, recovery, and
finding the strength it takes to face your past and move on. (summary from Goodreads)
There's a few reviews of this one already and they are full of praise. I love a good contemporary read that has me leaking feels all over the place, so definitely adding this one to my TBR!
