Waiting on Wednesday - Through To You


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that showcases our most wanted upcoming releases.

THROUGH TO YOU by Emily Hainsworth
*Release Date: October 2nd, 2012


Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. Viv was the last good thing in his life: helping him rebuild his identity after a career-ending football injury, picking up the pieces when his home life shattered, and healing his pain long after the meds wore off. And now, he’d give anything for one more glimpse of her. But when Cam makes a visit to the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees some kind of apparition. And it isn’t Viv.

The apparition’s name is Nina, and she’s not a ghost. She’s a girl from a parallel world, and in this world, Viv is still alive. Cam can’t believe his wildest dreams have come true. All he can focus on is getting his girlfriend back, no matter the cost. But things are different in this other world: Viv and Cam have both made very different choices, things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv isn’t the same girl he remembers. Nina is keeping some dangerous secrets, too, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day.

As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become and the part Nina played in his parallel story, he’s forced to choose—stay with Viv or let her go—before the window closes between them once and for all.

Okay, so I'm going to admit something a little geeky. I often daydream about what my life is like in a parallel universe. I think it would be totally rad to have a chat with your parallel self and find out what ways your lives are different. Of course, it would also be a little freaky, too. What if your other self is a criminal or dead? So a book about parallel worlds, and possible second chances with people that have been lost in this world, sounds like the coolest thing ever! I can't wait to read Camden's story and I can't wait to see this beautiful cover in person :0)

  3. I also think parallel worlds are a cool idea- I would love to speak to a parallel self! Would be awesome. This book may not be for me though- I think it's better to get over grief and move on than to cling on to a different version of someone...but then again maybe that is what he does in the book!
