Waiting on Wednesday: The Catastrophic History of You and Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that features upcoming releases we eager with anticipation for.

This week's pre-published book is:

The Catastrophic History of You and Me
Jess Rothenberg
Publishing 2.21.12

Summary from Goodreads: "Inventive, gorgeous, funny and yes . . . heartbreaking. You will absolutely love this book." — Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and Delirium.

Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever.

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

Mysterious, intriguing, cool and with the possiblity of a bad guy? I'm so in.

I love books of beginning again and moving on, especially when there's a guy involved. (Patrick...) While I'm not sure how exactly he will be, I'm still really excited!
Plus, I love the new concepts Jess Rothenberg has created. While Brie probably isn't a ghost, she's "dead and gone," which, quite frankly, seems really intriguing. I'm so glad there are authors like Jess!
