Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is The Space Between Trees by Katie Williams, set to hit shelves June 16 from Chronicle Books.
Summary: Not your everyday coming-of-age novel
This story was supposed to be about Evie how she hasn't made a friend in years, how she tends to stretch the truth (especially about her so-called relationship with college drop-out Jonah Luks), and how she finally comes into her own once she learns to just be herself but it isn't. Because when her classmate Elizabeth 'Zabet' McCabe's murdered body is found in the woods, everything changes and Evie's life is never the same again.
My Thoughts: Not only does the murder mystery aspect really pique my interest but the mix with a coming of age type of novel helps build the hype for me. Evie seems like she will definitely be thrust into some more adult situations and I personally love books that deal with those kind of situations, especially when handled smoothly. Though the cover is simple, it is still mysterious and holds a certain level of intrigue. The title itself fits fantastically in the spaces as well, tying it together.
