Book I Covet: Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

I love the understated cover and it kind of has that Eleanor & Park feel to it (or what I imagine Eleanor & Park is like since I haven't read it yet... but I will soon. Promise!).

It just sounds like Say What You Will is going to be a lovely read.

I want someone who will talk to me honestly about things. You're the only person who ever has. Maybe you don't know this, but when you're disabled almost no one tells you the truth. They feel too awkward because the truth seems too sad, I guess. You were very brave to walk up to the crippled girl and say, essentially, wipe that sunny expression off your face and look at reality. That's what I want you to do next year. Tell me the truth. That's all.

Amy and Matthew didn't know each other, really. They weren't friends. Matthew remembered her, sure, but he remembered a lot of people from elementary school that he wasn't friends with now.

Matthew never planned to tell Amy what he thought of her cheerful facade, but after he does, Amy realizes she needs someone like him in her life.

As they begin to spend more time with each other, Amy learns that Matthew has his own secrets and she decides to try to help him in the same way he's helped her. And when what started out as a friendship turns into something neither of them expected, they realize that they tell each other everything—except the one thing that matters most.

Say What You Will will be released on June 3, 2014. Click on the cover to go to the book's Goodreads page.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series we do here on Wednesdays. It will feature books we are very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is basically the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, but we just like the title "books we covet" better. We will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available.

    The first thing I thought after seeing the cover is that it reminds me of Eleanor & Park, which I haven't read yet either. It's not my usual read, but I'll definitely check it out next year. Thanks for stopping by mine. :)
