Waiting on Wednesday (54)

Title: Glimpse
Author: Carol Lynch Williams
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date: June 22, 2010
Twelve-year-old Hope’s life is turned upside down when her older sister, Lizzie, becomes an elective mute and is institutionalized after trying to kill herself. Hope and Lizzie have relied on each other from a young age, ever since the death of their father. Their mother, who turns tricks to support her family, is a reluctant and unreliable parent—at best. During the course of this lyrical and heartbreaking narrative from an exceptionally promising YA voice, readers will discover the chilling reason why Lizzie has stopped speaking—and why Hope is the only one who can bring the truth to light and save her sister.
This book sounds amazing. I also enjoyed her book from last year, and the cover is amazing.


  1. I would love to read Glimpse - you've captured my interest with this one! Another great book you might like is coming out tomorrow called "Her Mother’s Diary," which is about a homeless woman whose bad choices led to her parents' death by drug lords. In the story she needs to find the money her mother had hidden before the drug lords do. It looks like an exciting story with a compelling perseverance theme.

  2. the cover is quite nice. It reminds me of the cover for Halo by Alexandra Adornetto that is coming out in September. I think it is the sun, I love those type of shots.


Thanks for visiting. Every comment creates a smile.
