Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait to read! On occasion, I will feature a book that has already been published, but that I am eagerly anticipating anyway. I figure that still counts:)
Other Words for Love
by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
When an unexpected inheritance enables Ari to transfer to an elite Manhattan prep school, she makes a wealthy new friend, Leigh. Leigh introduces Ari to the glamorous side of New York—and to her gorgeous cousin, Blake. Ari doesn't think she stands a chance, but amazingly, Blake asks her out. As their romance heats up, they find themselves involved in an intense, consuming relationship. Ari’s family worries that she is losing touch with the important things in life, like family, hard work, and planning for the future. Meanwhile, Summer warns her that what she feels for Blake is just an infatuation. Not real love. But Ari’s world is awash with new colors, filled with a freshness and an excitement she hasn’t felt in years.
When misfortune befalls Blake’s family, he pulls away, and Ari's world drains of color. As she struggles to get over the breakup, Ari must finally ask herself: were their feelings true love . . . or something else?
I downloaded the first chapter of this for my Kindle, and I liked it very much...I've also read several extremely positive reviews, so this one is definitely at the top of my payday purchase list!
