Wednesday Wishlist

If you are new to my blog, welcome! Wednesday Wishlist is a feature where I post about a book that is already out, and sometimes has been for years, that I am dying to read. I like to show some love for books even after their released!

Synopsis:
    Seventeen-year-old Hanna has been in love with Seth for as long as she can remember, but now that she and Seth are in an actual relationship, love isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seth is controlling and all they seem to do anymore is fight. If that’s what love is, Hanna doesn’t want any part of it. Besides, she has something else on her mind: graduation. But she’s been ignoring the school’s community service requirement, and now she needs to rack up some hours in a hurry.
    Hanna volunteers as a caretaker for her neighbor Mrs. Schoenmaker—an elderly woman with advanced Parkinson’s whose husband can’t always be there to watch over her. While caring for Mrs. S., Hanna becomes mesmerized by an audiobook that the older woman is listening to, a love story of passion, sacrifice, and complete devotion. She’s fascinated by the idea that love like that really exists, and slowly, the story begins to change her. But what Hanna doesn’t know is that the story she’s listening to is not fiction—and that Mrs. Schoenmaker and her husband’s devotion to each other is about to reach its shattering, irrevocable conclusion....

Why I want it:
    I read Such a Pretty Girl by Laura and it was amazing. I could not put it down. Since then I have been dying to read another one of her books. This story sounds like an engaging YA. I have been wanting to read more YA.
