Can’t Wait Wednesday – Spotlight on MORE THAN WE CAN TELL


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer.  The idea of this young man having to revisit traumatic events from his childhood makes this story sound so compelling, especially when you factor in friend (or maybe more than friend) he finds in Emma who is going through an equally rough time.  I also liked the added element of Emma being a computer coder who is dealing with an online troll since trolls seem to be everywhere now.


MORE THAN WE CAN TELL by Brigid Kemmerer

Publication Date:  March 6, 2018


From Goodreads:

From the author of Letters to the Lost comes a heart-wrenching story of two teens with big secrets and a love that could set them free.

Rev Fletcher is battling the demons of his past. But with loving adoptive parents by his side, he’s managed to keep them at bay…until he gets a letter from his abusive father and the trauma of his childhood comes hurtling back.

Emma Blue spends her time perfecting the computer game she built from scratch, rather than facing her parents’ crumbling marriage. She can solve any problem with the right code, but when an online troll’s harassment escalates, she’s truly afraid.

When Rev and Emma meet, they both long to lift the burden of their secrets and bond instantly over their shared turmoil. But when their situations turn dangerous, their trust in each other will be tested in ways they never expected. This must-read story will once again have readers falling for Brigid Kemmerer’s emotional storytelling.

    Great pick! I loved Letters to the Lost, and Rev was an integral character in that book, so I’m glad we’ll get the chance to know him better.

    Sounds pretty good, and yes about trolls. Good grief why are there so many people out there who want to irritate/ hurt others? Never understand it.

      I don’t understand it either. There’s just something about the anonymity of the internet that seems to bring out the worst in some people.

    Yaaassss! I love Kemmerer’s books. I’ve read all of them and there was only one that I didn’t totally love, but still enjoyed it. Letters to the Lost is definitely my favorite! I have this new one and can’t wait to start reading it. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Suzanne =)

    This is an interesting mix of emotional and a wee bit of suspense in there. I like it — and you’re right, the troll and the dangers of social media are everywhere these days, and I am loving that, and what authors are coming up with. Great pick!

      Same here. I like that they’re doing it and I hope that their readers are taking heed and being more aware of the potential dangers online.
