Waiting on Wednesday: The Art of Falling


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine. It let us spotlight books that haven't been released, but that we can't wait for. This week we've picked The Art of Falling by Kathryn Craft  which is scheduled to be released on January 28th, 2014.

One wrong step could send her over the edge.

All Penny has ever wanted to do is dance—and when that chance is taken from her, it pushes her to the brink of despair, from which she might never return. When she wakes up after a traumatic fall, bruised and battered but miraculously alive, Penny must confront the memories that have haunted her for years, using her love of movement to pick up the pieces of her shattered life.

Kathryn Craft’s lyrical debut novel is a masterful portrayal of a young woman trying to come to terms with her body and the artistic world that has repeatedly rejected her. The Art of Falling expresses the beauty of movement, the stasis of despair, and the unlimited possibilities that come with a new beginning. 

We can't wait to read this one for a ton of reason. The cover is gorgeous, first of all. And the story sounds intriguing. Also, our very own Michaela is a very dedicated dancer, so whenever books come along about dancer's going after their dreams and facing hardships comes along, our interests are always piqued.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
