Waiting on Wednesday #45: What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  What to Say Next
Author:  Julie Buxbaum
Expected Publication Date:  July 11th, 2017

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things comes a charming and poignant story about two struggling teenagers who find an unexpected connection just when they need it most. For fans of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Niven, and Rainbow Rowell.

Sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.

KIT: I don’t know why I decide not to sit with Annie and Violet at lunch. It feels like no one here gets what I’m going through. How could they? I don’t even understand.

DAVID: In the 622 days I’ve attended Mapleview High, Kit Lowell is the first person to sit at my lunch table. I mean, I’ve never once sat with someone until now. “So your dad is dead,” I say to Kit, because this is a fact I’ve recently learned about her. 

When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David’s blunt honesty—in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit’s attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad’s tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they’ll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?

Oooh boy! What a way to start a friendship!  Anyway, a murder mystery with friendship at center stage?  Sounds like an interesting read to me! 

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!


  1. This cover reminds me of ice-cream so much -- but more than that, I like the idea of these two different people finding a connection.

  2. Great pick! This book is already on my TBR list as well. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. This one sounds cute! I hope you enjoy it :) Awesome WoW pick!

  5. I don't read contemporary books but I do like the range of topics that they cover. It means readers can relate to a lot of the topics and learn about things that haven't affected them. I think that is good for reading in general.

  6. I totally love that cover, looks so summery and fun. Story doesn't sound half bad either!

  7. Cute cover. I like the blurb too, seems like there's a bit of mystery in the mix, and I do love books about friendship being more. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. Excellent choice! I'm adding it to my wishlist right now!

  9. This sounds like a VERY cute story! GREAT summer reading, too! Nice pick!! Hope you enjoy it at the beach, which is what I will probably do with this book, since I'm adding it to my GR shelves!

    Thanks for commenting on my CWW post!! HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!! <3 <3 :) :)

  10. This one is SUPER cute - and made me want to read Julie's other YA. Hope you enjoy it, Ronyell.

    Happy reading, and thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland. :)

  11. Aw this sounds really cute! Great pick and thanks for stopping by by CWW earlier :)

  12. I loved this book so much! Tell Me Three Thins was awesome and I had no doubt that this new standalone of Buxbaum's would be great as well. And it was. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a great week, Ronyell. =)
