Waiting on Wednesday #10: This Is How It Happened by Paula Stokes

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

This Is How It Happened by Paula Stokes
 July 11th 2017, HarperTeen
YA Contemporary
Somehow I’ve become a liar. A coward. Here’s how it happened. 

When Genevieve Grace wakes up from a coma, she can’t remember the car crash that injured her and killed her boyfriend Dallas, a YouTube star who had just released his first album. Genevieve knows she was there, and that there was another driver, a man named Brad Freeman, who everyone assumes is guilty. But as she slowly pieces together the night of the accident, Genevieve is hit with a sickening sense of dread—that maybe she had something to do with what happened.

As the internet rages against Brad Freeman, condemning him in a brutal trial by social media, Genevieve escapes to her father’s house, where she can hide from reporters and spend the summer volunteering in beautiful Zion National Park. But she quickly realizes that she can’t run away from the accident, or the terrible aftermath of it all.

Incredibly thought-provoking and beautifully told, Paula Stokes’s story will compel readers to examine the consequences of making mistakes in a world where the internet is always watching…and judging.
O.M.G. Doesn't this book sound awesome? I literally heard about it yesterday when Paula Stokes tweeted that digital ARCs were up on Edelweiss & I swear I had never requested a book on Edelweiss so fast. Just read that blurb, and better yet, LOOK & READ THE TINY LETTERS IN THE COVER. They are social media updates and guys, it's 100% accurate to what goes around in social media every day. I need it, I need this book so much and I hope HarperTeen grants my request *fingers crossed*.

What are you waiting on this week? :)

  3. I have only read Liars Inc. by Paula Stokes before, but I really enjoyed that one so I would love to read more by her! I think this is one I want to read too. The synopsis looks good :D
