Waiting on Wednesday - The Space Between Us by Jessica Martinez
October 16th, 2012 from Simon Pulse
From the author of Virtuosity, a novel about two sisters and the secrets they tell, the secrets they keep, and the secret that tears them apart.
Amelia is used to being upstaged by her charismatic younger sister, Charly. She doesn’t mind, mostly, that it always falls to her to cover for Charly’s crazy, impulsive antics. But one night, Charly's thoughtlessness goes way too far, and she lands them both in serious trouble.
Amelia's not sure she can forgive Charly this time, and not sure she wants to…but the situation is even worse than either of them realizes. Amelia has no choice but to give up everything--her friends, her future, her dream--in order to cover for Charly’s huge mistake.
Amelia doesn't understand how her sister could have done this to them both. What she doesn't know is that Charly is hiding a terrible secret—one with the potential to change everything.
I love a good family drama and this one sounds terrific! I have two daughters and I can't imagine this situation happening to them. I can't wait to find out what Charly's big secret is and what Amelia has to do to cover for her. This pink cover really stands out and that alone will draw a reader. I haven't read Virtuosity, but I know tons of people really enjoyed it.
