Waiting on Wednesday: A World Without You by Beth Revis

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  This week I've picked a standalone by an author that is another favorite of mine. Hmm, do I say that every week?  Well, since I do love authors, they are my rock stars, I guess it only makes sense.  This one sounds like a twisty story that maybe can't be quite placed as either a science fiction, or maybe it's just a drama type of story.  I guess we won't know until we read it!  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his concerned parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have "superpowers."

At Berkshire, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age.

But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she's not actually dead. He believes that she's stuck somewhere in time — that he somehow left her in the past, and now it's his job to save her.


So, what do you think, it sounds like either it is really about kids with superpowers, or maybe they're actually in a school for kids who are troubled, and they are just actually troubled mentally.  I don't know, can't tell for sure. But I'm very eager to read it and find out just what is going on. And I know the author's writing will make it a fascinating read!

What book are you eagerly awaiting this week? Do you think you'll add this one to your TBR?

  1. This sounds like a very interesting read. It could be like the children from Miss. Peregrine's who all have unique abilities, which would be pretty cool. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. It sounds like it has a little of everything...time travel, history, paranormal, angsty-teenagers, mental health issues, romance. I've seen Beth Revis's name but can't remember if I've read her before. I will look for it. When is it published?

    1. So jealous! I didn't get it from First to Read. But I think I can get it on Edelweiss. I never seem to get anything from Penguin's First to REad. Oh well. We'll have to compare notes on this one after we read it! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I just read this book! I liked it a lot. SO different from Revis' debut trilogy, and The Body Electric. I love how well the story was written - so well-structured. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely week, Lisa. =)
