CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

Release date: January 12th 2016
Publisher: Farrar, Straus & Giroux
Purchase: Amazon | B&N


Synopsis via Goodreads:
Morgan didn’t mean to do anything wrong that day. Actually, she meant to do something right. But her kind act inadvertently played a role in a deadly tragedy. In order to move on, Morgan must learn to forgive—first someone who did something that might be unforgivable, and then, herself.

But Morgan can’t move on. She can’t even move beyond the front door of the apartment she shares with her mother and little brother. Morgan feels like she’s underwater, unable to surface. Unable to see her friends. Unable to go to school.

When it seems Morgan can’t hold her breath any longer, a new boy moves in next door. Evan reminds her of the salty ocean air and the rush she used to get from swimming. He might be just what she needs to help her reconnect with the world outside.

Underwater is a powerful, hopeful debut novel about redemption, recovery, and finding the strength it takes to face your past and move on.

  6. This really does sound compelling. Morgan is obviously a very sensitive girl, and I can definitely relate to that. I know this book will be very emotional, but I also believe those are the best types of reads. I can't wait for "Underwater" to surface! On to Goodreads!

    Thanks for sharing! Happy Reading!! : )

  9. I just cried bucket of tears because of the last contemporary drama romance I read, this is why I tend to shy away from this kind of genre, they make my heart hurt. <3

    1. I think this genre is the best when you want to feel and connect on an emotional scale. That's why I love contemporary drama with romance.
