Waiting on Wednesday: Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that showcases our most wanted upcoming releases.
I haven't done a WoW post in a really long time, but I just heard about this book over the weekend and I am dying to get my hands on a copy. The story sounds incredible and the author was so, so nice. May cannot get here quick enough :0)
Release Date: May 28th, 2013
Publisher: Running Press Kids
Frenchie Garcia can’t come to grips with the death of Andy Cooper. Her friends didn’t know she had a crush him. And they don’t know she was the last person with him before he committed suicide. But Frenchie’s biggest concern is how she blindly helped him die that night.

Frenchie’s already insane obsession with death and Emily Dickinson won’t help her understand the role she played during Andy’s “one night of adventure.” But when she meets Colin, she may have found the perfect opportunity to recreate that night.
The synopsis is pretty intriguing on it's own, but when I met Jenny at an event this weekend, she described it a little bit further and I can tell you that it immediately moved to the top of my wishlist. I love books that tell the story of how a person comes to terms with the death of someone they cared about. Add in the fact that it incorporates Emily Dickinson and I already I know I'm just going to love it. A friend told me the style is similar to that of Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley, and that is one of my favorite contemporary reads, so it's all the more reason to check it out. I cannot wait for May, when I can finally read this one :0)
