On My Wishlist #1: Tell Me A Secret

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by Book Chick City where you can talk about a book you want to read but haven't actually bought yet.

My pick for this week is...

Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala
(Amazon / Goodreads)

Amazon description:

It's tough living in the shadow of a dead girl. . . .
In the five years since her bad-girl sister Xanda's death, Miranda Mathison has wondered about the secret her sister took to the grave, and what really happened the night she died. Now, just as Miranda is on the cusp of her dreams—a best friend to unlock her sister's world, a ticket to art school, and a boyfriend to fly her away from it all—Miranda has a secret all her own.
When two lines on a pregnancy test confirm her worst fears, Miranda is stripped of her former life. She must make a choice with tremendous consequences and finally face her sister's demons and her own.
In this powerful debut novel, stunning new talent Holly Cupala illuminates the dark struggle of a girl who must let go of her past to find a way into her own future.

I know, I know, the cover is corny, to say the least. But the description sounds really interesting - there should be some mystery about the death, lots of emotions about both the sister's death and the pregnancy, and (form the reviews I've read) the characters and the writing are supposed to be great - what more could you ask for?

What's on your wishlist this week?


  1. Good story, characters and writing are enough - the story sounds interesting, definitely and I always love finding new authors. I'll look forward to seeing reviews about this one, I hope you end up getting it.
