Wishlist Thursday[49]: This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready

This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready

Genre: YA Contemporary (I think?)

Publisher: Simon Pulse (Simon & Schuster)

Release Date: April 1st, 2014

Goodreads Synopsis:

Everyone mourns differently. When his older brother was killed, David got angry. As in, fist-meets-someone-else’s-face furious. But his parents? They got religious. David’s still figuring out his relationship with a higher power, but there’s one thing he does know for sure: The closer he gets to new-girl Bailey, the better, brighter, happier, more he feels.

Then his parents start cutting all their worldly ties in to prepare for the Rush, the divine moment when the faithful will be whisked off to Heaven…and they want David to do the same. David’s torn. There’s a big difference between living in the moment and giving up his best friend, varsity baseball, and Bailey—especially Bailey—in hope of salvation.

But when he comes home late from prom, and late for the Rush, to find that his parents have vanished, David is in more trouble than he ever could have imagined...


I am really excited to read this. I was a rather big fan of Smith-Ready’s previous Shade series, and this sounds really good. The cover is really pretty, the premise sounds very intriguing, and I just overall have a good feeling about it. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on it.
