"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Starboard Sea

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Starboard Sea
By Amber Dermont
Publication Date: February 28

From Library Journal:

A Manhattan penthouse, a flashy prep-school eduction, a summer home in Maine: as his name suggests, Jason Prosper comes from wealth. But he ignores all the fuss and pretension, instead preferring to sail with Cal, his best friend at Kensington Prep. When Cal commits suicide during their junior year, a devastated Jason transfers to another school and launches a gentle romance with Aidan. Then Aidan’s bruised body is discovered on the beach after a terrible storm blows through, and she is ruled a suicide, too. But Jason begins to wonder—could something connect the deaths of two people so close to him?—and he begins contemplating what dark secrets those around him might be hiding.

Sounds mysterious. That would really stink if it happened in real life. Everyone he loves leaves in the worst way possible.
Thanks for sharing!
