Waiting on Wednesday {19}

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine 
This weeks much anticipated book release is:
Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected Publication: April 24th 2012 by Walker & Company
From Goodreads
Allie lost everything the night her boyfriend, Trip, died in a horrible car accident—including her memory of the event. As their small town mourns his death, Allie is afraid to remember because doing so means delving into what she’s kept hidden for so long: the horrible reality of their abusive relationship.
When the police reopen the investigation, it casts suspicion on Allie and her best friend, Blake, especially as their budding romance raises eyebrows around town. Allie knows she must tell the truth. Can she reach deep enough to remember that night so she can finally break free? Debut writer Jennifer Shaw Wolf takes readers on an emotional ride through the murky waters of love, shame, and, ultimately, forgiveness.
Why am I Waiting on this one? The story line seems tragic but beautiful and I love myself a good emotional tear-jerker. Aside from that, I like stories of redemption with a little bit of teen angst. Mysteries are always good and it seems that more and more authors are taking the path of moments forgotten to tell their tales. Readers follow along with the narrator as he or she tries to piece together a pivitol moment in their life that holds the key to their present circumstances. I'm interested to see how this one will all work out!
What are you waiting on this week?
