Waiting on Wednesday–Until It Hurts to Stop by Jennifer R. Hubbard

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 haven’t read anything by Jennifer R. Hubbard yet, and Until It Hurts to Stop sounds like a great place to start.  I love the cover and the summary sounds promising.  Have you read anything by this author?  What did you think?  I’d love to know your thoughts if you’ve been lucky enough to read an ARC of this book.

Until It Hurts to StopTitle & Author: Until It Hurts to Stop by Jennifer R. Hubbard

Release Date: September 12th, 2013

Publisher: Viking Juvenile

Summary (From Goodreads):

When you can’t trust anyone, how can you ever feel safe?

In seventh grade, Maggie Camden was the class outcast. Every day, the other girls tripped her, pinched her, trapped her in the bathroom, told her she would be better off dead. Four years have passed since then, and Maggie’s tormentors seem to have moved on. The ringleader of them all, Raleigh Barringer, even moved out of town. But Maggie has never stopped watching for attacks, and every laugh still sounds like it’s at her expense. The only time Maggie feels at peace is when she’s hiking up in the mountains with her best friend, Nick. Lately, though, there’s a new sort of tension between the two of them—a tension both dangerous and delicious. But how can Maggie expect anything more out of Nick when all she’s ever been told is that she’s ugly, she’s pathetic, she’s unworthy of love? And how can she ever feel safe, now that Raleigh Barringer is suddenly—terrifyingly—back in town?
