Waiting on Wednesday (25)

So Shelly - Ty Roth
*February 8th, 2011 Delacorte
Until now, high school junior, John Keats, has only tiptoed near the edges of the vortex that is schoolmate and literary prodigy, Gordon Byron. That is, until their mutual friend, Shelly, drowns in a sailing accident.

After stealing Shelly's ashes from her wake at Trinity Catholic High School, the boys set a course for the small Lake Erie island where Shelly's body had washed ashore and to where she wished to be returned. It would be one last "so Shelly" romantic quest. At least that's what they think. As they navigate around the obstacles and resist temptations during their odyssey, Keats and Gordon glue together the shattered pieces of Shelly's and their own pasts while attempting to make sense of her tragic and premature end.
Literary references! Keats! Shelly! There's something very haunting about the premise, and it sounds like it might have Romantic elements, so it'll definitely be interesting to see how this plays out.

Furthermore, how awesome is the mood in the cover image? Love the font on "shelly" as well.

What're you waiting on this Wednesday?
