Waiting On Wednesday: My Beautiful Failure by Janet Ruth Young

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

This week’s selection is:

Book: My Beautiful Failure  

Author: Janet Ruth Young

Release Date: November 13th 2012

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Billy is a sophomore in high school, and twice a week, he volunteers at Listeners, a suicide hotline.

Jenney is an “incoming,” a caller, a girl on the brink.

As her life spirals out of control, Jenney’s calls become more desperate, more frequent. Billy, struggling with the deteriorating relationship with his depressed father, is the only one who understands. Through her pain, he sees hope. Through her tears, he feels her heart. And through her despair, he finds love. But is that enough?

Why I’m waiting:

I actually wanted to wait a little while longer before posting this book as a WoW, but then I thought: ‘I can’t wait any longer, I need the world to know about it!’ It’s the strangest thing, but the cover along with the description kind of made me go ‘Holy COW! I need this!’ I’m telling you, it was strange, and now My Beautiful Failure is one of my most awaited books. I admit I have a few, but this one is at the top of my list.

If only November was around the corner.

What are you waiting on?
