Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is one of the 2010 Debut Authors- Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala which is set to hit shelves June 22. I am loving the cover on this one- I think it fits with the premise.

Summary (From
Author's Website):

One line means a chance for Miranda Mathison to escape her life for good –
her suffocating mother, her invisible father, and most of all the vortex left by the death of her bad-girl sister, Xanda.

One line means she is still the good daughter, poised for art school and a teaching career. One line means a future with boyfriend Kamran, despite his flirtation with her best friend, Delaney.

Two lines mean risking everything to pursue the labyrinth of her sister’s life, discover the mystery of her death, and free herself in the process…especially if she decides to keep the baby.

My Thoughts: First off, I really love this cover. Somehow it seems to fit with both the title and the premise and since I am a total sucker for this kind of raw, truth kind of books, I would definitely pick this one up. The very fact that the premise tells you she is pregnant and may or may not keep the baby just draws me in more because it such a real issue but so often ignored. Cupala just might have a big hit on her hands with this one. Now if only I could get my hands on this one...
