Waiting on Wednesday (#43) - This Side of Salvation by Jeri-Ready Smith

Waiting on Wednesday is Hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine

This Side of Salvation
Goodreads Summary: Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.

Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.

But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined...

Why I'm Waiting For It: This might be my first Jeri-Ready Smith book ever..and I eager to pick it up! The cover is truly amazing and simplistic, which I love. In addition, I love the approach to the mourning and I'm dying to see how Jeri takes it with her readers! Overall, I hope it's a solid book that will make me pick up her other books! Looking forward to this one in April 1, 2014!

This Side of Salvation by Jeri-Ready Smith will be released on April 1, 2014 by Simon Pulse.
