The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

Expected Publication: January 7, 2014  knife

Publisher: Viking Juvenile

Synopsis from Goodreads:

For the past five years, Hayley Kincaid and her father, Andy, have been on the road, never staying long in one place as he struggles to escape the demons that have tortured him since his return from Iraq. Now they are back in the town where he grew up so Hayley can attend school. Perhaps, for the first time, Hayley can have a normal life, put aside her own painful memories, even have a relationship with Finn, the hot guy who obviously likes her but is hiding secrets of his own. 



Will being back home help Andy’s PTSD, or will his terrible memories drag him to the edge of hell, and drugs push him over? The Impossible Knife of Memory is Laurie Halse Anderson at her finest: compelling, surprising, and impossible to put down.

It feels like there are so many books that I need in my life coming out soon. I chose The Impossible Knife of Memory because I read a short excerpt of the book and it was so great. I think Hayley will be a really memorable character especially since Laurie Halse Anderson writes some really great novels. 

What books are you looking forward to reading? What books are coming out next year that you can’t wait to read?
