Waiting on Wednesday: And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Title: And We Stay by Jenny Hubbard
Published by: Delacorte Press
Release date: January 28th, 2014

When high school senior Paul Wagoner walks into his school library with a stolen gun, he threatens his girlfriend Emily Beam, then takes his own life. In the wake of the tragedy, an angry and guilt-ridden Emily is shipped off to boarding school in Amherst, Massachusetts, where she encounters a ghostly presence who shares her name. The spirit of Emily Dickinson and two quirky girls offer helping hands, but it is up to Emily to heal her own damaged self. This inventive story, told in verse and in prose, paints the aftermath of tragedy as a landscape where there is good behind the bad, hope inside the despair, and springtime under the snow.


Why I want to read it: I like the cover for the book and the implication of Emily Dickinson's ghost.  Sounds really different and I do enjoy stories told in verse. 

What are you waiting for this week?

  6. This book sounds incredible! I haven't read a book written in verse before, but I am intrigued by the technique. I definitely need to get myself a copy of And We Stay when it's released. Thanks for the introduction!
