Waiting on Wednesday (17)

The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab

Caro Mitchell considers herself an only child—and she likes it that way. After all, her much older sister, Hannah, left home eight years ago, and Caro barely remembers her. So when Caro’s parents drop the bombshell news that Hannah is returning to live with them, Caro feels as if an interloper is crashing her family. To her, Hannah’s a total stranger, someone who haunts their home with her meek and withdrawn presence, and who refuses to talk about her life and why she went away. Caro can’t understand why her parents cut her sister so much slack, and why they’re not pushing for answers.
Unable to understand Hannah, Caro resorts to telling lies about her mysterious reappearance. But when those lies alienate Caro’s new boyfriend and put her on the outs with her friends and her parents, she seeks solace from an unexpected source. And when she unearths a clue about Hannah’s past—one that could save Hannah from the dark secret that possesses her—Caro begins to see her sister in a whole new light.

I really loved Anna Jarzab's first novel, All Unquiet Things, so I can't wait for her next one!


  1. I haven't read any of Jarzab's novels but my good friend read this one and she said it was AMAZING, so I really want to read this one. Great pick!

    My WoW.

  3. This was a really interesting read. You get to know Caro's sister and her beau Pavel more than you get to know Caro, but it's a nice thick read you can sink your teeth into. You'll love it!

  4. I love Anna's writing. I'm excited to read this one.
