Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly waiting to be released.
This week’s Waiting On Wednesday is The Last Time We Were Us by Leah Konen!
Publication: May 10th 2016 by Katherine Tegen Books
Summary from Goodreads:
A passionate summer love story about a girl, her childhood best friend recently released from juvie, and the small-town lies that have kept them apart. A teen romance debut with a dark edge.
Liz Grant is about to have the summer of her life. She and her friend MacKenzie are getting invited to all the best parties, and with any luck, Innis Taylor, the most gorgeous guy in Bonneville, will be her boyfriend before the Fourth of July.
Local teen convict released early.
Jason Sullivan wasn’t supposed to come back from juvie. A million years ago, he was her best friend, but that was before he ditched her for a different crowd. Before he attacked Innis’s older brother, leaving Skip’s face burned and their town in shock.
“Everything is not what you think.”
Liz always found it hard to believe what they said about Jason, but all of Bonneville thinks he’s dangerous. If word gets out she’s seeing him, she could lose everything. But what if there’s more to that horrible night than she knows? And how many more people will get hurt when the truth finally comes out?
“You’re the one person who believes in me.”
Leah Konen’s southern romance swelters with passion as it explores the devastating crush of lies, the delicate balance of power and perception, and one girl’s journey to find herself while uncovering the secrets of so many others.
This sounds so cutesy and amazing and wonderful and I want it now, dammit! Just… D’Awwww….What do you guys think? Excited, yes? Or no? I don’t bite, I promise.

The whole falling in love with your childhood best friend trope is one I just love. Did you ever read Emmy and Oliver? It doesn’t have much in common beyond that one thing, but it’s also such a great book.
(Also, I think Anna Kendrick has a book coming out? I saw something on her Instragram the other day).
I haven’t read Emmy and Oliver yet, though it’s on my list. : )
ANND WHHHATTT? I must read it. I love her, she’s hilarious. I’m going to go stalk Instagram now.
Thank you for stopping by ❤
I know! I’m so excited to read it when it comes out. And you should totally read Emmy and Oliver. I think it was my favourite contemporary of last year.
