Waiting on Wednesday #14: Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

9:24 AM

Title:  Underwater
Author: Marisa Reichardt
Publisher: Farrar, Straus, & Giroux
Publication date: January 12th 2016


Morgan didn’t mean to do anything wrong that day. Actually, she meant to do something right. But her kind act inadvertently played a role in a deadly tragedy. In order to move on, Morgan must learn to forgive—first someone who did something that might be unforgivable, and then, herself.

But Morgan can’t move on. She can’t even move beyond the front door of the apartment she shares with her mother and little brother. Morgan feels like she’s underwater, unable to surface. Unable to see her friends. Unable to go to school. 

When it seems Morgan can’t hold her breath any longer, a new boy moves in next door. Evan reminds her of the salty ocean air and the rush she used to get from swimming. He might be just what she needs to help her reconnect with the world outside. 

Underwater is a powerful, hopeful debut novel about redemption, recovery, and finding the strength it takes to face your past and move on.

My thoughts:

Some of my favorite books to read are those that present main characters who suffer from some kind of mental illness. They never fail to move me or make me connect with the MC and the story itself. This one sounds like an amazing book and I can't wait to read it. 

What are you guys excited for? Let me know in the comments!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
