Waiting on Wednesday (56) ~ Another Robin Talley Book!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I'm back to participating in this meme! I was trying to get into a different one for awhile, but I didn't like it nearly as much as this one. I missed putting WoW posts together!

What am I waiting on?

What We Left Behind by Robin Talley
October 27th, 2015 by Harlequin Teen

Goodreads description:
From the critically acclaimed author of Lies We Tell Ourselves comes an emotional, empowering story of what happens when love isn't enough to conquer all.

Toni and Gretchen are the couple everyone envied in high school. They've been together forever. They never fight. They're deeply, hopelessly in love. When they separate for their first year at college—Toni to Harvard and Gretchen to NYU—they're sure they'll be fine. Where other long-distance relationships have fallen apart, their relationship will surely thrive.

The reality of being apart, however, is a lot different than they expected. As Toni, who identifies as genderqueer, falls in with a group of transgender upperclassmen and immediately finds a sense of belonging that has always been missing, Gretchen struggles to remember who she is outside their relationship.

While Toni worries that Gretchen, who is not trans, just won't understand what is going on, Gretchen begins to wonder where she fits in Toni's life. As distance and Toni's shifting gender identity begins to wear on their relationship, the couple must decide—have they grown apart for good, or is love enough to keep them together?
Why am I waiting on it?

I read Lies We Tell Ourselves last year and it was fantastic. I have no doubt that I'll love Robin Talley's second book! I'm excited to meet Toni and Gretchen and read their story.

That's my WoW this week! What's yours?
