Waiting on Wednesday: THE GIRL WHO FELL by Shannon M. Parker

This week's WoW is one that I am highly anticipating. It is being labelled a "dark kissing book" and I am so excited to get my hands on it next year. This week's book is:

THE GIRL WHO FELL by Shannon M. Parker


Author: Shannon M. Parker
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: March 1, 2016

His obsession.
Her fall.

In this dark kissing book, high school senior Zephyr Doyle is swept off her feet—and into an intense relationship—by the new boy in school.

Zephyr is focused. Focused on leading her team to the field hockey state championship and leaving her small town for her dream school, Boston College.

But love has a way of changing things.

Enter the new boy in school: the hockey team’s starting goaltender, Alec. He’s cute, charming, and most important, Alec doesn’t judge Zephyr. He understands her fears and insecurities—he even shares them. Soon, their relationship becomes something bigger than Zephyr, something she can’t control, something she doesn’t want to control.

Zephyr swears it must be love. Because love is powerful, and overwhelming, and…terrifying?

But love shouldn’t make you abandon your dreams, or push your friends away. And love shouldn’t make you feel guilty—or worse, ashamed.

So when Zephyr finally begins to see Alec for who he really is, she knows it’s time to take back control of her life.

If she waits any longer, it may be too late. 

I am really excited for this one and have heard such good things about it. It comes out on March 1st, 2016 and I am just sitting here staring at my calendar waiting and waiting and waiting... I think what makes me the most excited is that it openly admits that this relationship is going to be toxic but Zephyr is going to come to realize that. Which seems to be so rare in YA. I see so many toxic relationships and the characters just roll with it and that's NOT OKAY. So I am anticipating that this one will break the mould.

  1. Ooh, this sounds good :) As much as I love YA contemporary romance, I agree – there need to be more books that showcase toxic relationships in a negative light, not a positive one. Thanks so much for sharing this!
