"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Before You
Author: Amber Hart
Expected publication: July 29, 2014
Age group: Young Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Some say love is deadly. Some say love is beautiful. I say it is both.
Faith Watters spent her junior year traveling the world, studying in exquisite places, before returning to Oviedo High School. From the outside her life is picture-perfect. Captain of the dance team. Popular. Happy. Too bad it’s all a lie.
It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.
Eighteen-year-old Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn’t stand a chance of fitting in. Nor does he want to. His only concern is staying hidden from his past—a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him everything. Including his life.
At Oviedo High School, it seems that Faith Watters and Diego Alvarez do not belong together. But fate is as tricky as it is lovely. Freedom with no restraint is what they long for. What they get is something different entirely.
Love—it will ruin you and save you, both.

Why I'm waiting: To be honest, it's on my TBR pile because when I first read the synopsis, I thought it was New Adult. I just found out it was Young Adult when I typed up this post. I think that says a lot about why I'm waiting, lol. It sounds like something I would totally pick up!
So, that's what I'm anxiously waiting for this Wednesday! What are you waiting for? Leave a comment below and dish it out! I can't wait to see everyone's picks!
