Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday event, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Every week, we gather around the blogosphere and search out the upcoming book releases, sharing our thoughts and blurbs.  Today, I am eager to feature an upcoming release from a favorite author.  I love spotlighting eagerly anticipated books!  

The Secret Language of Sisters, by Luanne Rice, will be released on 2/23/16.

Blurb:  New York Times bestselling adult author Luanne Rice makes her dazzling YA debut with this gorgeous, unputdownable story of love, hope, and redemption.

When Ruth Ann (Roo) McCabe responds to a text message while she’s driving, her life as she knows it ends. The car flips, and Roo winds up in a hospital bed, paralyzed. Silent. Everyone thinks she’s in a coma, but Roo has locked-in syndrome — she can see and hear and understand everything around her, but no one knows it. She’s trapped inside her own body, screaming to be heard.

Mathilda (Tilly) is Roo’s sister and best friend. She was the one who texted Roo and inadvertently caused the accident. Now, Tilly must grapple with her overwhelming guilt and her growing feelings for Roo’s boyfriend, Newton — the only other person who seems to get what Tilly is going through.

But Tilly might be the only person who can solve the mystery of her sister’s condition — who can see through Roo’s silence to the truth underneath.

Somehow, through medicine or miracles, will both sisters find a way to heal?

I have enjoyed several adult books by this author, so I am eager to see what she will do with the YA genre.  What do you think?  Does it capture your interest?

  1. Wow…I am surprised at you even thinking about reading YA. And I can’t believe this author is writing YA…I am properly gob smacked!

    • Patty, I do occasionally read YA…but they are usually books written by authors I’ve read, who also write adult books (Judy Blume is an example, and so is Joyce Maynard). I like YA books with issues, and I don’t like silly teen stuff or vampires. LOL.
