Waiting on Wednesday: If I Lie (23)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

This week, I am waiting on...
If I Lie by Corrine Jackson

Expected Publication Date: August 28, 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
SynopsisA powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception. 

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town. 

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.
This book sounds completely different and unique. It's not the usual YA contemporary. You know the type: fluffy and light and romantic. It's also not one that extremely heavy, like books about cancer, disorders, suicide, etc. I don't think it fits into either category. It kind of stands on it's own, and I like that. Plus, the book sounds awesome-amazing-I-need-it-now-worthy! :)

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
