Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we showcase an upcoming release we're eagerly anticipating.
My WoW this week is:
Even in Paradise
By Chelsey Philpot
Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: October 14, 2014
When Julia Buchanan enrolls at St. Anne’s at the beginning of junior year, Charlotte Ryder already knows all about the former senator’s daughter. Most people do... or think they do.
Charlotte certainly never expects she’ll be Julia’s friend. But almost immediately, she is drawn into the larger than-life-new girl’s world—a world of midnight rendezvous, dazzling parties, palatial vacation homes, and fizzy champagne cocktails. And then Charlotte meets, and begins falling for, Julia’s handsome older brother, Sebastian.
But behind her self-assured smiles and toasts to the future, Charlotte soon realizes that Julia is still suffering from a tragedy. A tragedy that the Buchanan family has kept hidden … until now.
I've read that this is reminiscent of The Great Gatsby, and that caught my attention. Sounds like a thrilling, cautionary tale.
What do you think, sound good? What's your Waiting on Wednesday?
