WoW: This is What it Feels Like by Rebecca Barrow

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

This Is What It Feels Like

     It doesn’t matter what the prize for the Sun City Originals contest is this year.
     Who cares that’s it’s fifteen grand? Who cares about a gig opening for one of the greatest bands to ever play this town?
     Not Dia, that’s for sure. Because Dia knows that without a band, she hasn’t got a shot at winning Sun City. Because ever since Hanna’s drinking took over her life, Dia and Jules haven’t been in it. And ever since Hanna left — well, there hasn’t been a band.
     It used to be the three of them, Dia, Jules, and Hanna, messing around and making music and planning for the future. But that was then, and this is now — and now means a baby, a failed relationship, a stint in rehab, all kinds of off beats that have interrupted the rhythm of their friendship. No contest can change that. Right?
     But like the lyrics of a song you used to play on repeat, there’s no forgetting a best friend. And for Dia, Jules, and Hanna, this impossible challenge — to ignore the past, in order to jumpstart the future — will only become possible if they finally make peace with the girls they once were, and the girls they are finally letting themselves be.
     Rebecca Barrow’s tender story of friendship, music, and ferocious love asks — what will you fight for, if not yourself?

Why I'm Waiting: Anything that has to do with music, count me in! Added on to that, it sounds like a "really real" tale of two friends. Plus, let's be honest, THIS COVER IS THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD. Idk if that's Dia, but she's gorgeous lol
