[Waiting On Wednesday: What We Hide]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"What We Hide"
Author: Marthe Jocelyn
Release Date: April 8th, 2014


Americans Jenny and her brother, Tom, are off to England: Tom to university, to dodge the Vietnam draft, Jenny to be the new girl at a boarding school, Illington Hall. This is Jenny's chance to finally stand out, so accidentally, on purpose, she tells a lie. But in the small world of Ill Hall, everyone has something to hide. Jenny pretends she has a boyfriend. Robbie and Luke both pretend they don't. Brenda won't tell what happened with the school doctor. Nico wants to hide his mother's memoir. Percy keeps his famous dad a secret. Oona lies to everyone. Penelope lies only to herself.
   Deftly told from multiple points of view in various narrative styles, including letters and movie screenplays, What We Hide is provocative, honest, often funny, and always intriguing.

This book just sounds interesting!  I like that it's told in so many voices and in odd ways.  It might be an odd read, but I have high hopes that the author is going to pull this one off!  Also, who doesn't love a good American girl goes to England story!  I'm always down for one of those!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

So I've never heard of this one but it totally sounds intriguing! I'm crazy curious and I can always use another boarding school story in my life, especially if it's set in the past! Very cool.

Oh, sounds so good. Though, it put me off at first with so many characters, so glad it's written differently for the perspective, hopefully they won't get drowned out. Adding this one to the list. Thanks for stopping by mine yesterday! :)
