Waiting on Wednesday: You are My Only

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  This post spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I don't normally do this weekly meme but an author, Beth Kephart, whose work I enjoyed immensely, (Dangerous Neighbors)  needs my assistance.  Plus Beth is a fellow Philadelphian so how can I not help her out.

Beth Kephart is the author of many moving young adult novels that deal with weighty issues, sometimes adult issues.  Things that young people shouldn't have to deal with so soon.  Beth's writing is beautiful, moving and really puts the reader in the mind of the character.  Beth has a new novel being released on October 25, and here's the scoop:

Emmy Rane is married at nineteen , a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock. Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the “No Good.” One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that opens Sophie’s eyes, giving her the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever…
The riveting stories of Emmy and Sophie—alternating narratives of loss, imprisonment, and freedom regained—escalate with breathless suspense toward an unforgettable climax.
