Coming Soon the a Library Near You

Coming Soon to a Library Near You is a weekly feature inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine that looks at upcoming books.

This Week’s Book: Playing Hurt
Author: Holly Schindler
Release Date: March 8 2011
Summary: Star basketball player Chelsea "Nitro" Keyes had a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family. That summer, Chelsea's dad hires Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player and "boot camp" trainer, to work with her at a northern Minnesota lake resort. As they grow close, Chelsea finds that Clint's haunted by his own tragedy. Will their romance end up hurting them all over again—or finally heal their heartbreak?

Oh, this sounds like one of my favourite movies from when I was a kid, The Cutting cute!

Yay! Contemporary YA, no creatures. That alone makes it a fresh pick! The cover reminds me of the books by Elin Hilderbrand whose novels are all set in Nantucket. Great choice!

This one sounds so good! I've heard that the Holly's first book was awesome, but I have yet to read it. and this one sounds just as awesome.

Katie said...

Seems like everyone is just glad it's not another Vampire book :) Thanks for the lovely comments.

I loved Schindler's debut novel, so I'm excited to see what this one's all about. I loved THE CUTTING EDGE, too!
