This week I am waiting on
The Art of Feeling by Laura Tims
Publication Date: August 15th 2017
Since the car accident, Samantha Herring has been in pain, not only from her leg injury, but also from her mother’s death, which has devastated her family. After pushing away her friends, Sam has receded into a fog of depression.
But then Sam meets Eliot, a reckless loner with an attitude and an amazing secret—he can’t feel any pain. At first, Sam is jealous. But then she learns more about his medical condition…and his self-destructive tendencies. In fact, Eliot doesn’t seem to care about anything at all—except maybe Sam. As they grow closer, they begin to confront Sam’s painful memories of the accident—memories that may hold a startling truth about what really happened that day.
This is exactly the kind of contemporary book I’m looking for. Two people that have experienced difficulties find solace in each other and along the journey they find out the truth about events that led them to where they are now. It’s these types of books that have the promise of incredible character growth. I can’t wait to go on this journey with them.
What’s your most anticipated book?
