Waiting On...


Title: Fans of the Impossible Life
Author: Kate Scelsa
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: September 8, 2015 
This is the story of a girl, her gay best friend, and the boy in love with both of them.

Ten months after her recurring depression landed her in the hospital, Mira is starting over as a new student at Saint Francis Prep. She promised her parents she would at least try to act like a normal, functioning human this time around, not a girl who sometimes can’t get out of bed for days on end, who only feels awake when she’s with Sebby.

Jeremy is the painfully shy art nerd at Saint Francis who’s been in self-imposed isolation after an incident that ruined his last year of school. When he sees Sebby for the first time across the school lawn it’s as if he’s been expecting this blond, lanky boy with a mischievous glint in his eye.

Sebby, Mira’s gay best friend, is a boy who seems to carry sunlight around with him like a backlit halo. Even as life in his foster home starts to take its toll, Sebby and Mira together craft a world of magic rituals and secret road trips, designed to fix the broken parts of their lives.

As Jeremy finds himself drawn into Sebby and Mira’s world, he begins to understand the secrets that they hide in order to protect themselves, to keep each other safe from those who don’t understand their quest to live for the impossible.

A captivating and profound debut novel, "Fans of the Impossible Life" is a story about complicated love and the friendships that change you forever.

Why I'm Waiting...


Just look at that first sentence - "a girl, her gay best friend, and the boy in love with both of them." It's an insane book waiting to be read!

At first, I originally thought I'd pass on this one, but the more and more I thought about it, the more and more I wanted to read it. I love books with complicated stories, and this one looks very promising. 

I was lucky enough to get an ARC from Heather Doss at Harper when she sent a "surprise me" contemporary ARC, and I'm very much looking forward to reading this. Look out for a review in the near future.

What Are You Waiting On...


As always, feel free to let me know what book or books you're waiting on in the comments. You can also leave links to your own Waiting on Wednesday posts, and I'll check them out! We all know I love exploring other blogs and adding even more books to my never-ending TBR list.
