Waiting on Wednesday: The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!The Secrets We Keep

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Author: Trisha Leaver

Release date: April 28, 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A girl takes over her twin sister’s identity in this emotionally charged page-turner about the complicated bond between sisters.
Ella and Maddy Lawton are identical twins. Ella has spent her high school years living in popular Maddy’s shadows, but she has never been envious of Maddy. In fact, she’s chosen the quiet, safe confines of her sketchbook over the constant battle for attention that has defined Maddy’s world.
When—after a heated argument—Maddy and Ella get into a tragic accident that leaves her sister dead, Ella wakes up in the hospital surrounded by loved ones who believe she is Maddy. Feeling responsible for Maddy’s death and everyone’s grief, Ella makes a split-second decision to pretend to be Maddy. Soon, Ella realizes that Maddy’s life was full of secrets. Caught in a web of lies, Ella is faced with two options—confess her deception or live her sister’s life.

Why I’m excited: Came across this title on Goodreads and was drawn in by that super cool cover. Then I read the synopsis and had to add it to my TBR. I’ve always thought it’d be fun to have a twin, to pretend to be them for a while and be a different person, but this sounds scary and strange and like it’s going to turn out to not be that fun after all. Looking forward to reading this one.
