This week's WoW book is called Don't Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala.
All I had to do was read the summary and then a few of the comments that it has gotten from other authors and groups to get drawn into this book. Every girl (and guy) has been in a tough spot with relationships at some point in their life, and this book sounds like it speaks out on dealing with those hard times. Check out below for more info:
Title: Don't Breathe a Word
Author: Holly Cupala
Release Date: October 18, 2011
Goodreads Summary: Joy Delamere is suffocating.
From asthma, from her parents, and from her boyfriend, delectably dangerous Asher, who is smothering her from the inside out.
Joy can take his words—tender words, cruel words—until the night they go too far. Now, Joy will leave everything behind to find the one who has offered his help, a homeless boy called Creed. She will become someone else. She will learn to survive. She will breathe...if only she can get to Creed before it’s too late.
Set against the gritty backdrop of Seattle’s streets and a cast of characters with secrets of their own, Holly Cupala’s powerful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, the meaning of love, and how far a girl will go to discover her own strength.
