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’m reading The Things a Brother Knows by Dana Reinhardt right now and have decided that I’d like to read more of her books. I’ve read that she takes a lot of time writing and researching her stories, which I always appreciate. Considering the nature of this book, I’m going to assume she spent a lot of time working on it and looking into what can happen when this kind of relationship takes place. I also like that there’s a strong sibling element to the story. I know I’ll be looking for an ARC at NCTE this November!

Summary (From Goodreads):
Nell knows a secret about her perfect, beautiful sister Layla. If she tells, it could blow their world apart.
When Nell and Layla were little, Nell used to call them Nellaya. Because to Nell, there was no difference between where she started and her adored big sister ended. They’re a unit; divorce made them rely on each other early on, so when one pulls away, what is the other to do? But now, Nell’s a freshman in high school and Layla is changing, secretive. And then Nell discovers why. Layla is involved with one of their teachers. And even though Nell tries to support Layla, to understand that she’s happy and in love, Nell struggles with her true feelings: it’s wrong, and she must do something about it.
