Waiting on Wednesday: This Side of Salvation

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which asks what book we're most looking forward to. 


This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
Publication date: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.

Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.

But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined...


Another Jeri Smith-Ready book! I'm so excited. So very very. Very. Excited. And the cover is amazing. And the synopsis sounds amazing. You are amazing. And everything is amazing.

What are you waiting on this week?

  8. I had no idea the author had a new book out so thanks for sharing the gorgeous cover with us and telling me about a new book! I haven't read Audition but I've read lots of mixed opinions so I'm interested to see what people think of The Sound of Letting Go ;)

    That summary blew me away. At first glance it seems like it is just going to be a religious struggle but then all of a sudden the parents are gone. Do they disappear during rush or is something else at play? I am excited!
