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
Pages: 320

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.

*****

Praise for Don't Breathe a Word: 


“Holly Cupala’s debut novel will be immensely popular among teens. Teen fans will be captivated by the theme of owning your own path, the persistence of life and closure. ~Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

I dare you to set it down during its last hundred pages. I dare you.” ~Deb Caletti

“A powerful story of self-discovery, and a brilliant debut novel.” ~Ellen Hopkins

So that's my WoW for this week-- what is everyone else waiting for??

  3. I don't read much realistic fiction so the summary didn't snatch my attention. The blurb by Deb Caletti did though, I love her! I'll have to keep an eye out for more about this book.

  21. Looks interesting! I like young adult fiction that has an element of realism. Especially if that realism involves urban communities and homelessness, something we don't see enough of.

  22. I can't wait for this book either. I love, love, loved Tell Me a Secret. I still get a lump in my throat when I think about that book. I hope this one is just as good!

  25. I have this on my To-Read list too! It sounds like a book that's going to be difficult to read emotionally, but I think I'm going to love Creed. A homeless boy offering help to a girl who's struggling? Nice.
