Waiting on Wednesday ~ Something Kindred by Ciera Burch

Good evening everyone!

A very happy Wednesday! It is time for a new, and this time spooky, Waiting on Wednesday! Say hello to Something Kindred by Ciera Burch~

This book releases in 4-5 months (SO far away) and I am just dying to get it! I fell in love with the cover (the colours, how it feels like an old photograph, that camera, the girl) and then saw the blurb and knew totally I wanted it. Drama, ghosts, secret history, secrets, family, and more. Oh, and small town along with LGBT/lesbian romance? It sounds like an absolutely epic read.

Something Kindred by Ciera Burch, Girl holding a cameraMagical realism meets Southern Gothic in this commanding young adult debut from Ciera Burch about true love, the meaning of home, and the choices that haunt us.

Welcome to Coldwater. Come for the ghosts, stay for the drama.

Jericka Walker had planned to spend the summer before senior year soaking up the sun with her best friend on the Jersey Shore. Instead she finds herself in Coldwater, Maryland, a small town with a dark and complicated past where her estranged grandmother lives—someone she knows only two things her name and the fact that she left Jericka’s mother and uncle when they were children. But now Jericka’s grandmother is dying, and her mother has dragged Jericka along to say goodbye.

As Jericka attempts to form a connection with a woman she’s never known, and adjusts to life in a town where everything closes before dinner, she meets “ghost girl” Kat, a girl eager to leave Coldwater and more exciting than a person has any right to be. But Coldwater has a few unsettling secrets of its own. The more you try to leave, the stronger the town’s hold. As Jericka feels the chilling pull of her family’s past, she begins to question everything she thought she knew about her mother, her childhood, and the lines between the living and the dead.
