Waiting on Wednesday: If You Find Me and OCD Love Story

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!

This week's Psychtember WoW picks are:

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch

From Goodreads: 


A broken-down camper hidden deep in a national forest is the only home fifteen-year-old Carey can remember. The trees keep guard over her threadbare existence, with the one bright spot being Carey's younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their mother disappears for good, and the girls are found by their father, a stranger, and taken to re-enter the "normal" life of school, clothes and boys.

Now, Carey must come to terms with the truth of why their mother spirited them away ten years ago, while haunted by a past that won't let her go ... a dark past that hides many a secret, including the reason Jenessa hasn't spoken a word in over a year. Carey knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or risk watching her new life come crashing down.

IF YOU FIND ME is a riveting mix of psychological tension and page-turning mystery that asks profound questions about family, truth and love.

The start of this one sounds dark, but I'm interested to see how the transition goes for Carey and Jenessa. Jenessa's elective mutism also sounds intriguing! Plus, apparently some of the proceeds of this book go towards a Christmas project for teens with cancer.

OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu

From Goodreads:

"Corey Haydu’s young adult OCD LOVE STORY, in which a girl with OCD bonds with a boy from her group therapy program only to push their budding relationship beyond it limits when her further descent into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder leads her to stalk the objects of her obsession, and she must choose: confront her past or forever be controlled by it."

Love that the term "OCD" is right there in the title, and also that the cover is so bright and vivid! Makes a nice change from all the typical "issue book" covers. I just hope that the OCD is portrayed accurately and not hijacked by the "love story" side of things.

What books are you waiting for?
