Waiting On Wednesday (141)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My Beautiful Failure by Janet R. Young


   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?


Release Date: November 13, 2012
