Waiting On Wednesday (3) But I Love Him

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

PhotobucketTitle: But I Love Him
Author: Amanda Grace
Release Date: May 8th 2011
Publisher: Flux
SynopsisTonight was so much worse than anything before it. 
Tonight he didn't stop after the first slap. 

At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved-and needed. Ann can't recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor's rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything-and everyone-in its path. 

This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.

Why I'm waiting on it: It sounds like a heart-wrenching read, but also could be a beautiful story if told correctly. I hope it's as good as the synopsis suggests!

  7. Heey
    Sounds like a great book!! I'm a new follower! Hop over to my blog to see my WoW!

  8. Sounds pretty intense with an issue that unfortunately is more frequent for our teenage girls than is ever reported. I am interested in reading this to see how well the author handles the abuse and resolution.

  9. I've seen this one around, the cover reminds me so much of Sarah Ockler's 20 Boy Summer with the coloured glass pieces arranged in a heart! Great pick!
