Wishlist Wednesday #131: Where I Live by Brenda Rufener


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read.

This week’s book:

35516439Title: Where I Live
Author: Brenda Rufener
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: February 27, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads): Linden Rose has a big secret–she is homeless and living in the halls of her small-town high school. Her position as school blog editor, her best friends, Ham and Seung, and the promise of a future far away are what keep Linden under the radar and moving forward.

But when cool-girl Bea comes to school with a bloody lip, the damage hits too close to home. Linden begins looking at Bea’s life, and soon her investigation prompts people to pay more attention. And attention is the last thing she needs.

Linden knows the only way to put a stop to the violence is to tell Bea’s story and come to terms with her own painful past. Even if that means breaking her rules for survival and jeopardizing the secrets she’s worked so hard to keep.

Where I Live sounds like such an original story. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with a homeless main character, and I love how she is the school blog editor. This book sounds like it will be pretty suspenseful, and I can’t wait for its publication in February!

    I’ve been seeing this one around a lot lately but this is the first time I’ve actually read the summary and I have to say it sounds great. I feel like it will be interesting to read from a homeless teenager’s perspective. Hope you love it! 🙂
