On My Wishlist (#19)

On My Wishlist is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City that runs every Saturday.  It's a place where you can put up all the books you're desperate to read, but haven't actually bought them yet.  They can be old, new or forthcoming.    And, even better, everyone can join in with too, because there's a Mr Linky so you can put your post up.  All you have to do is click on the link below:

 
Just one on my wishlist this week - an amazing-looking one.  A powerful one...  And it is:

Synopsis From Goodreads:
Seven months ago, on a rainy March night, sixteen year- old Willow’s parents died in a horrible car accident. Willow was driving. Now her older brother barely speaks to her, her new classmates know her as the killer orphan girl, and Willow is blocking the pain by secretly cutting herself. But when one boy —one sensitive, soulful boy—discovers Willow’s secret, it sparks an intense relationship that turns the “safe” world Willow has created for herself upside down.
Told in an extraordinary fresh voice, Willow is an unforgettable novel about one girl’s struggle to cope with tragedy, and one boy’s refusal to give up on her.
This one sounds amazing - even more so as it's suggested for people who love Thirteen Reasons Why, You Against Me, Before I Die and Entangled, four books I loved.  Plus, Sammee gave it 5 Stars, and I've come to completely trust her reviews.  I'm desperate to read this one!  :D
 
 
Well, that's me.  :D
 
What's on your wishlist this week?
