Waiting On: Golden by Jessi Kirby (19)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: Golden
Author: Jessi Kirby
Release Date: May 14th, 2013
Publisher: Simon & Schuster BFYR
Seventeen-year-old Parker Frost has never taken the road less traveled. Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she’s about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules. So when fate drops a clue in her lap—one that might be the key to unraveling a town mystery—she decides to take a chance.

Julianna Farnetti and Shane Cruz are remembered as the golden couple of Summit Lakes High—perfect in every way, meant to be together forever. But Julianna’s journal tells a different story—one of doubts about Shane and a forbidden romance with an older, artistic guy. These are the secrets that were swept away with her the night that Shane’s jeep plunged into an icy river, leaving behind a grieving town and no bodies to bury.

Reading Julianna’s journal gives Parker the courage to start to really live—and it also gives her reasons to question what really happened the night of the accident. Armed with clues from the past, Parker enlists the help of her best friend, Kat, and Trevor, her longtime crush, to track down some leads. The mystery ends up taking Parker places that she never could have imagined. And she soon finds that taking the road less traveled makes all the difference.

I liked In Honor by Jessi Kirby and everyone's already buzzing about this book, so I'm INTERESTED. Not to mention, this one doesn't sound like your typical YA contemporary story. There are a lot of layers - at least by the way the summary sounds. I just hope the many plots it sounds like this book has doesn't ruin what sounds like awesome.

Have you guys heard anything about this one? Better yet, have you read it? Tell me, tell me in the comments below! 


  1. This one looks a bit more complex than the typical YA read. Great pick! Old follower.


  2. THIS IS SO GOOD! I got the chance to read an ARC, and I loved it. I thought I loved In Honor, but that's nothing compared to how I feel about Golden.

    1. OOOH. Well, you know how I felt about In Honor and to know you liked Golden better is PROMISING.

  3. Fantastic pick for this week! :)
