Waiting on Wednesday 1/19/11

PLAYING HURT by Holly Schindler

SYNOPSIS:
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?

This one's going to be a little tricky, because it;s always weird to read a book where the central character has the same name as me. But I loved Holly's first book A Blue So Dark and definitely want to see how her next book plays out.

Release Date: March 8, 2011

I always think it's somewhat cool when a character in a book has the same first name as me, though that's just my take. Anyhow, this one does look fantastic. Great pick! :)
