Waiting on Wednesday #27

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

You Are My Only by Beth Kephart
Publisher: Egmont USA (US)
Release Date: October 2011 (US)
Emmy Rane is married at nineteen , a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock. Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the "No Good." One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that opens Sophie's eyes, giving her the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever...

The riveting stories of Emmy and Sophie—alternating narratives of loss, imprisonment, and freedom regained—escalate with breathless suspense toward an unforgettable climax.

I haven't read anything by Beth Kephart yet, and this sounds quite haunting! Really like the cover as well :)



  1. I love the cover. Is Emmy a member of a cult or something? Or it's just a coincidence that she's a teen mom?

  2. I just saw this one on Goodreads yesterday - sounds good! I like the cover too.


Show your love for this post. G'waaaaaaaan you know you want to.
