It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA or MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
THE ART OF FEELING
Releases 15 August 2017 from HarperTeen
Since the car accident, Samantha Herring has been in pain, not only from her leg injury, but also from her mother’s death, which has devastated her family. After pushing away her friends, Sam has receded into a fog of depression.
But then Sam meets Eliot, a reckless loner with an attitude and an amazing secret: he can’t feel any pain. At first, Sam is jealous. But then she learns more about his medical condition—and his self-destructive tendencies. In fact, Eliot doesn’t seem to care about anything at all, except maybe Sam. As they grow closer, they begin to confront Sam’s painful memories of the accident—memories that may hold a startling truth about what really happened that day.
Perfect for fans of Jennifer Niven’s All the Bright Places, this contemporary YA novel explores the friendship between a girl in constant pain and a boy who feels nothing at all.

Chronic pain rep? SIGN ME UP. The fact that this book also includes a person with congenital analgesia makes it an even more interesting, and hopefully insightful, read. So add it to your list! I'll be back Saturday.
