Book I Covet: The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

Why I covet this book: First of all, the cover is gorgeous. But besides that it has everything I love in a contemporary young adult book: teen angst, a mysterious boy, romance...

Oh, and according to the author on Goodreads, the whole story happens in 24 hours. I haven't read a young adult book set up like this before.

daybeforeThe Day Before by Lisa Schroeder (out June 28, 2011)
Sometimes there's no turning back.

Amber's life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of her family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.

Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell that he's also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.

The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she's drawn to him. And the more she's troubled by his darkness. Because Cade's not just living in the now--he's living each moment like it's his last.

Do you covet any book(s) this week?

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here.
It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available.
