Waiting On Wednesday #1

So Shelly by Ty Roth
Publication Date: February 8

From Goodreads: Until now, high school junior, John Keats, has only tiptoed near the edges of the vortex that is schoolmate and literary prodigy, Gordon Byron. That is, until their mutual friend, Shelly, drowns in a sailing accident.
After stealing Shelly's ashes from her wake at Trinity Catholic High School, the boys set a course for the small Lake Erie island where Shelly's body had washed ashore and to where she wished to be returned. It would be one last "so Shelly" romantic quest. At least that's what they think. As they navigate around the obstacles and resist temptations during their odyssey, Keats and Gordon glue together the shattered pieces of Shelly's and their own pasts while attempting to make sense of her tragic and premature end.

The cover looks great and the story sounds interesting. It had me at 'odyssey'. I'm curious about Shelly's character in this story as she seems to be very important to the two guy. Can't wait to read this!

  6. The cover looks so dark and moody. I'm really into dark beautiful covers like this right now. I'm not sure what I will read next. I guess whatever is sitting in my inbox!
