Waiting On: Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine
Title: Severed Heads, Broken Hearts
Author: Robyn Schneider
Release Date: June 4th, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books


Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.

No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.


But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
 

Robyn Schneider’s Severed Heads, Broken Hearts is a lyrical, witty, and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.


[Summary Source: Goodreads]
Contemporary is one of my favorite genres and this books sounds super cute and wonderful. Not to mention, Robyn Schneider's a really cool, Whovian who makes awesome vlogs, so I can only imagine this book will reflect her brilliance.


So what are YOU waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments below!
