This week I’m eagerly waiting on:
Goodbye Perfect by Sara Barnard
Expected publication: 8 February 2018
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
When I was wild, you were steady . . .
Now you are wild – what am I?
Eden McKinley knows she can’t count on much in this world, but she can depend on Bonnie, her solid, steady, straight-A best friend. So it’s a bit of a surprise when Bonnie runs away with the boyfriend Eden knows nothing about five days before the start of their GCSEs. Especially when the police arrive on her doorstep and Eden finds out that the boyfriend is actually their music teacher, Mr Cohn.
Sworn to secrecy and bound by loyalty, only Eden knows Bonnie’s location, and that’s the way it has to stay. There’s no way she’s betraying her best friend. Not even when she’s faced with police questioning, suspicious parents and her own growing doubts.
As the days pass and things begin to unravel, Eden is forced to question everything she thought she knew about the world, her best friend and herself.
Why I’m eagerly awaiting…
I have actually just read an ARC of this, literally, this last week, but I’m still adding it as my Waiting on Wednesday because it’s being released soon and I thought it was amazing. You can read my review on February 3 as part of the blog tour. I adored Barnard’s debut Beautiful Broken Things and thought I’d like this one as well, as I did, and it was awesome.
