Waiting on Wednesday: This is How it Happened by Paula Stokes

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 What I'm waiting for...


Somehow I’ve become a liar. A coward. Here’s how it happened.

When Genevieve Grace wakes up from a coma, she can’t remember the car crash that injured her and killed her boyfriend Dallas, a YouTube star who had just released his first album. Genevieve knows she was there, and that there was another driver, a man named Brad Freeman, who everyone assumes is guilty. But as she slowly pieces together the night of the accident, Genevieve is hit with a sickening sense of dread—that maybe she had something to do with what happened.

As the internet rages against Brad Freeman, condemning him in a brutal trial by social media, Genevieve escapes to her father’s house, where she can hide from reporters and spend the summer volunteering in beautiful Zion National Park. But she quickly realizes that she can’t run away from the accident, or the terrible aftermath of it all.

Incredibly thought-provoking and beautifully told, Paula Stokes’s story will compel readers to examine the consequences of making mistakes in a world where the internet is always watching…and judging.


Why am I waiting on this book? I've loved every book by Paula Stokes I've read and this feels different from everything I've read so far. I can't wait to read it, I'm sure it'll be amazing!

What about you?



  1. I'm not quite sure I want to read this one! I've read all of Paula Stokes/Fiona Paul's books... this one might be the first that I skip. I seem to struggle a little, with her contemporary. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Lis! =)
