Waiting on Wednesday (3): A Step Toward Falling by Cammie McGovern

A Step Toward Falling
Author: Cammie McGovern
To be published on October 6, 2015

Cammie McGovern follows up her breakout young adult debut, Say What You Will, with this powerful and unforgettable novel about learning from your mistakes, and learning to forgive. 
Told in alternating points of view, A Step Toward Falling is a poignant, hopeful, and altogether stunning work that will appeal to fans of Jennifer Niven, Robyn Schneider, and Jandy Nelson. 
Emily has always been the kind of girl who tries to do the right thing—until one night when she does the worst thing possible. She sees Belinda, a classmate with developmental disabilities, being attacked. Inexplicably, she does nothing at all. 
Belinda, however, manages to save herself. When their high school finds out what happened, Emily and Lucas, a football player who was also there that night, are required to perform community service at a center for disabled people. Soon, Lucas and Emily begin to feel like maybe they're starting to make a real difference. Like they would be able to do the right thing if they could do that night all over again. But can they do anything that will actually help the one person they hurt the most?

I was looking for some titles to request on Edelweiss when I saw a gorg cover. When I looked more closely, I saw something- Cammie McGovern. I've read her YA debut Say What You Will and I liked it.
(A giant thank you to Stay Bookish for the SWYW giveaway. First win ever!)

This looks interesting and the plot can make me want to read this without the author being Cammie McGovern. This one's a romance novel too! (I've been waiting on three Wednesdays for romance-ish books so...)

Its tagline thingy- Sometimes the worst thing to do is nothing at all - I LOVE IT. I also loooove the fonts used in the cover! (They're actually what made the cover attractive to me!) Now, I look forward to all of Cammie's YA works partly because of the covers (and the tagline thingies!).
