Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.

More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer
Expected publication: March 6th 2018 by Bloomsbury Children’s

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.

Not only is Brigid Kemmerer an auto-buy author of mine but More Than We Can Tell features Rev from Letters to the Lost, which is my favorite book of hers. And Rev was actually my favorite characters from it as well. So I’m really looking forward towards this new release next year. It already has some really great feedback and even a starred review from Booklist.
About the covers: I featured both the UK (above) and US (below) covers but my favorite is the UK one. I can’t even express how in love I am with that cover. The colors are so beautiful! With Letters to the Lost I also preferred the UK cover, so I’ll definitely buy the UK one this time as well. 
What do you think of this title? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I loved Letters to the Lost even more than I expected, so I'm excited to see that the story is continuing and Rev is getting his own book. Great pick!

  2. I like both covers quite a bit, actually! I've been hearing more and more about this one, and I am definitely curious. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. Oh, this sounds like such a GREAT story!! I LOVE novels that include psychological elements, and especially if characters are struggling to overcome abuse. I already feel for Rev and Emma!

    I haven't read "Letters to the Lost", but, based on your comments, I see that I really should, just as I should read this one, too! I'm adding them both to my Goodreads shelves.

    As for the covers, I TOTALLY agree with you about the U.K. cover. It's definitely the more beautiful of the two!

    Thanks for sharing! Thanks as well for commenting on my CWW post!! <3 <3 <3 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. I haven't read anything by this author before, but I have heard great things! This one sounds like such a wonderful contemporary. Both covers are cute, but I think the second one is my favourite. 🙂

  5. The UK cover looks a bit softer. But both are wonderful to look at. And the summary sounds very interesting. Might go on my wishlist *smile* Thanks for sharing and sorry for my belated comment.

    Best wishes
