12:00 AM Serena 4 Comments

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, for sharing upcoming releases we're excited about. 

This week's pick is:
Not After Everything by Michelle Levy
Expected Publication Date: August 4th, 2015

A gritty but hopeful love story about two struggling teens—
great for fans of The Spectacular Now, Willow, and Eleanor and Park

Tyler has a football scholarship to Stanford, a hot girlfriend, and a reliable army of friends to party with. Then his mom kills herself. And Tyler lets it all go. Now he needs to dodge what his dad is offering (verbal tirades and abuse) and earn what his dad isn’t (money). Tyler finds a job that crashes him into Jordyn, his former childhood friend turned angry-loner goth-girl. She brings Tyler an unexpected reprieve from the never-ending pity party his life has become. How could he not fall for her? But with his dad more brutally unpredictable than ever, Tyler knows he can’t risk bringing Jordyn too deeply into the chaos. So when violence rocks his world again, will it be Jordyn who shows him the way to a hopeful future? Or after everything, will Tyler have to find it in himself? 

Michelle pitched this to me and my friends during speed dating at Ontario TBF last month, and I added it to my TBR right when I got home. I kind of wanted to squeal about it when she was talking, but that would have been rude and crazy so I tried to remain calm. It was hard though because 1) THAT COVER IS SO GORGEOUS. The typography - I love! and 2) It sounds like something I'd really enjoy, so I'm SO excited. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know! 


  1. Oh my goodness YES. I want this book so bad! It sounds amazing, and I love the cover too. Great pick!

    1. I want it bad too! I've been hunting for an ARC, partly because I need to read it and partly because I want to stare at the cover. Thanks for stopping by, Danielle!
