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.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine. It focuses on upcoming releases that we are most looking forward to reading. I love participating in this week after week and hope you enjoy it as well!
I’m definitely excited about this one. It’s the authors debut novel and it seems to be receiving positive reviews so far. I’m anxious to see how the book portrays mental illness so hopefully it’ll live up to my pretty high expectations! This will be a great read and I look forward to reading it in January.
Hope you enjoyed reading my WOW for this week. Let me know what your pick was!
