Waiting on Wednesday: The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, it spotlights upcoming releases that we are dying to read.

The Year We Fell Apart

Few things come as naturally to Harper as epic mistakes. In the past year she was kicked off the swim team, earned a reputation as Carson High’s easiest hook-up, and officially became the black sheep of her family. But her worst mistake was destroying her relationship with her best friend, Declan.

Now, after two semesters of silence, Declan is home from boarding school for the summer. Everything about him is different—he’s taller, stronger…more handsome. Harper has changed, too, especially in the wake of her mom’s cancer diagnosis.

While Declan wants nothing to do with Harper, he’s still Declan, her Declan, and the only person she wants to talk to about what’s really going on. But he’s also the one person she’s lost the right to seek comfort from.

As their mutual friends and shared histories draw them together again, Harper and Declan must decide which parts of their past are still salvageable, and which parts they’ll have to let go of once and for all.

In this honest and affecting tale of friendship and first love, Emily Martin brings to vivid life the trials and struggles of high school and the ability to learn from past mistakes over the course of one steamy North Carolina summer. 

Expected publication: January 26th 2016 by Simon Pulse

What are you waiting on?


  1. I like the sound of this Magen. I want to know what happened between Harper and Declan!

  2. The cover really didn't capture my attention, but boy, the blurb certainly did. I definitely need to keep my eye out for this one.

  3. I love that cover. It is so simple but so beautiful. This one sounds incredibly heartbreaking but also really good. Awesome pick!

  4. Great pick, hope you get a chance to read it soon.

  5. This sounds so heart-wrenching -- but just like the kind of book I love! I'm adding this to the wish list for sure. Wonderful WoW pick, my friend! *hugs*
