Wishful Wednesday: I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every week, I'll pick an upcoming book that I'm anticipating the release for and showcase it here on the blog. This week, that book is going to be I Was Here by the beautifully talented Gayle Forman

Okay, I cannot even with this book, because it's Gayle Forman and nobody does contemporary like she does. And, because this looks like it's definitely going to have a hand in giving me ALL THE FEELS.

Expected Publication: January 27, 2015
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Age Demographic: YA Contemporary
Pages: 288
Cody and Meg were inseparable. Two peas in a pod. Until . . . they weren’t anymore.

When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.

I Was Here is Gayle Forman at her finest, a taut, emotional, and ultimately redemptive story about redefining the meaning of family and finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss.

    1. Gayle Forman is definitely one of my favorite YA Contemporary author's and I think she is just amazing. I really loved her Just One Day/Just One Year duology the best out of everything she's written and I'm really looking forward to this one too. Thanks, for stopping by the blog. :)

  2. True true! I completely agree that no one does contemporary like Gayle Forman, though for whatever reason I'm less excited for I Was Here. I've read all her other works but this one, I think it's the subject matter and what the synopsis implies about the romance too. I've been seeing some varying reviews, so I've got to check out an excerpt or something first, but I hope that you enjoy it :)
