Waiting On Wednesday .... I Stop Somewhere

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is I Stop Somewhere by T.E. Carter

Here is the Goodreads synopsis 
THE LOVELY BONES meets ALL THE RAGE in a searing, heartbreaking story of a lost teenager, and the town she leaves behind.

Ellie Frias disappeared long before she vanished.

Tormented throughout middle school, Ellie begins her freshman year with a new look: she doesn’t need to be popular; she just needs to blend in with the wallpaper.

But then the unthinkable happens and Ellie is trapped after a brutal assault. She wasn't the first victim and now she watches it happen again and again. She tries to hold on to her happier memories in order to get past the cold days, waiting for someone to find her.

The problem is, no one searches for a girl they never noticed in the first place. 

TE Carter’s stirring and visceral debut not only discusses and dismantles rape culture but also makes you slow down and think about what it is to be human. 
I can already tell this one is going to be hard to read. The deal announcement was a touch more spoiler filled than this synopsis and it sounds like a very difficult book to read and to write. I am curious as to how the book handles these intense and heartbreaking themes that this story seems to hold.

I am hoping it is as good as I anticipate it being, and that it prompts some thoughtful discussions after people read it.

It is schedule for winter release, and it sounds like the perfect time to curl up with a book like this (along with the tissues that sound like will be needed).

Expected release date - February 27, 2018
