Sorry for skipping out on Top Ten Tuesday yesterday! It was kind of a crazy day. I can't believe I'm leaving for my last semester of school already--which means I'm now scrambling to get ready because I was totally ignoring it before.
Anyway, welcome back to "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which book bloggers share an upcoming novel release about which they are very excited. So here's the next YA from the top of my TBR!
TELL ME SOMETHING REAL
Releases 30 August 2016 from S&S/Atheneum
Three sisters struggle with the bonds that hold their family together as they face a darkness settling over their lives in this masterfully written debut novel.
There are three beautiful blond Babcock sisters: gorgeous and foul-mouthed Adrienne, observant and shy Vanessa, and the youngest and best-loved, Marie. Their mother is ill with leukemia and the girls spend a lot of time with her at a Mexican clinic across the border from their San Diego home so she can receive alternative treatments.
Vanessa is the middle child, a talented pianist who is trying to hold her family together despite the painful loss that they all know is inevitable. As she and her sisters navigate first loves and college dreams, they are completely unaware that an illness far more insidious than cancer poisons their home. Their world is about to shatter under the weight of an incomprehensible betrayal…

Okay, I'm just really draw in by this "illness far more insidious than cancer" thing, in a family setting no less--what is it? Mental illness? Abuse? I am interested in reading about both of these things!
Thanks for checking in, and I'll see you on Saturday for my post on the Ch1Con 2016 blog tour!
