Waiting on Wednesday is a topic hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers post about books that they are looking forward to being published in the near future 🙂
This week’s WoW book is The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan!
Middie is finding the strength to make it happily through the next year while her boyfriend, Nate, spends the year after graduation volunteering in Central America. This becomes much more difficult for Middie after a tragic accident leaves her reeling. Feeling isolated in her grief, Middie turns to solace in the most unlikely of places, Nate’s best friend, Lee.
Though the two haven’t gotten along in the past, Lee and Middie find they can lean on each other in order to find their way forward again.
I am interested to see how Cat Jordan portrays Lee and Middie’s grief in The Leaving Season. I feel like this is a common time in life when people experience and process loss for the first time and there are so many different outlets that people use to express their emotions. I could easily see this being a very heartbreaking and healing story.
The Leaving Season comes out March 1st 2016, and is published by Harper Teen.
