I'm Waiting On Golden by Jessi Kirby

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating!

This week I chose...

Title: Golden
Author: Jessi Kirby
Release Date: May 14, 2013

Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Parker Frost has never taken the road less traveled. Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she’s about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules. So when fate drops a clue in her lap—one that might be the key to unraveling a town mystery—she decides to take a chance.

Julianna Farnetti and Shane Cruz are remembered as the golden couple of Summit Lakes High—perfect in every way, meant to be together forever. But Julianna’s journal tells a different story—one of doubts about Shane and a forbidden romance with an older, artistic guy. These are the secrets that were swept away with her the night that Shane’s jeep plunged into an icy river, leaving behind a grieving town and no bodies to bury.

Reading Julianna’s journal gives Parker the courage to start to really live—and it also gives her reasons to question what really happened the night of the accident. Armed with clues from the past, Parker enlists the help of her best friend, Kat, and Trevor, her longtime crush, to track down some leads. The mystery ends up taking Parker places that she never could have imagined. And she soon finds that taking the road less traveled makes all the difference.

I was already excited about this book but am now even more so after it got a few raving reviews on goodreads. It sounds like a good personal growth story with a little mystery thrown in. I can also usually relate to main characters that come out of their shell to live life. Their stories are always an inspiration to me.

What are you waiting on?

  8. I LOVED this book. It was amazing and I think everyone should read it. :) I definitely wish I had read it when I was in high school or even a few years back. I might have thought about some things differently. It's that type of book- really makes you think about your own life and choices. I love those!
