Waiting On Wednesday #5 Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It's a way to showcase an upcoming release that we are excited for.

On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road. 

Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang’s haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.

My Reaction
This book looks amazing and I'm already hearing some early buzz going around even though it doesn't release until September. I do have a very eclectic taste and this definitely seems like a book I'll love. Excited for it and eagerly awaiting September so that I can grab a copy of this book. It's gonna be a long wait but I think this book will be worth it.

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. Ooo, I definitely want to read this one! I had hoped that Harper would put it on Edelweiss, but alas. I feel like I've been waiting for this one for years!

    Check out my WoW post!

  2. I feel like this novel will bring some questions to the forefront of many people's minds that many of us don't want to confront or think about.
