Waiting on Wednesday–Kindness for Weakness by Shawn Goodman

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.


I really, really loved Shawn Goodman’s debut Something Like Hope, so I’m really, really excited about his sophomore release Kindness for Weakness.  His passion for helping teens stands out in his writing and really resonated with me.  I know the summary for this book is sparse, but it’s still intriguing.

  1. Whoo hoo! As soon as I saw the author I snapped to attention. So happy he’s got a new book coming out. Loved the last one. Thanks for highlighting it.

  2. The book sounds intense, I had not heard of it before. Interesting pick!
