Waiting on Wednesday (Waiting On Wednesday #1)

As far as I understand, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine where we post one of our most anticipated releases of this upcoming year.

I am so excited for the book I have chosen to share with you guys! It sounds wonderful! It is a Young Adult Contemporary Novel that focuses on Cassie O'Malley and her relationship with her mother, among other things...
So for my first Waiting On Wednesday post... I have chosen...

The First Time She Drowned

The First Time She Drowned
by Kerry Kletter

Publication Date: March 15th, 2016

The beautiful struggle of a girl desperate for the one relationship that has caused her the most pain 
From Goodreads:

Cassie O'Malley has spent the past two and a half years in a mental institution—dumped there by her mother, against her will. Now, at 18, Cassie emancipates herself, determined to start over. She attends college, forms new friendships, and even attempts to start fresh with her mother. But before long, their unhealthy relationship threatens to pull Cassie under once again. As Cassie struggles to reclaim her life, childhood memories persist and confuse, and Cassie must consider whose version of history is real, and more important, whose life she must save.

A bold, literary story about the fragile complexities of mothers and daughters and learning to love oneself, The First Time She Drowned reminds us that we must dive deep into our pasts if we are ever to move forward.
