"Waiting On" Wednesday: Hyacinth Girls


"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:


Hyacinth Girls

By Lauren Frankel
Publication Date: May 12

From Amazon:

Thirteen-year-old Callie is accused of bullying at school, but Rebecca knows the gentle girl she's raised must be innocent. After Callie is exonerated, she begins to receive threatening notes from the girl who accused her, and as these notes become desperate, Rebecca feels compelled to intervene. As she tries to save this unbalanced girl, Rebecca remembers her own intense betrayals and best-friendships as a teenager, when her failure to understand those closest to her led to tragedy. She'll do anything to make this story end differently. But Rebecca doesn’t understand what’s happening or who is truly a victim, and now Callie is in terrible danger.

I requested an eARC of Hyacinth Girls from Netgalley last year. Sadly, I decided to DNF it because I just couldn't connect with the story. I hope you enjoy it more. :)
