Waiting on Wednesday: The Sound of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

The moment I read the synopsis for this book, I knew I was going to feature it in my Waiting on Wednesday post this week. It's going to be released tomorrow, the sixth of February!

The reason I'm waiting for The Sound of Letting Go, is because it's told in verse. And the synopsis implies a love triangle ;) And the cover is gorgeous. Okay those are my reasons, final answer!

For sixteen years, Daisy has been good. A good daughter, helping out with her autistic younger brother uncomplainingly. A good friend, even when her best friend makes her feel like a third wheel. When her parents announce they’re sending her brother to an institution—without consulting her—Daisy’s furious, and decides the best way to be a good sister is to start being bad. She quits jazz band and orchestra, slacks in school, and falls for bad-boy Dave. 

But one person won’t let Daisy forget who she used to be: Irish exchange student and brilliant musician Cal. Does she want the bad boy or the prodigy? Should she side with her parents or protect her brother? How can she know when to hold on and when—and how—to let go?
