How to Save a Life
by Sara Zarr

Goodreads synopsis:
Jill MacSweeney just wishes everything could go back to normal. But ever since her dad died, she’s been isolating herself from her boyfriend, her best friends—everyone who wants to support her. And when her mom decides to adopt a baby, it feels like she’s somehow trying to replace a lost family member with a new one.

Mandy Kalinowski understands what it’s like to grow up unwanted—to be raised by a mother who never intended to have a child. So when Mandy becomes pregnant, one thing she’s sure of is that she wants a better life for her baby. It’s harder to be sure of herself. Will she ever find someone to care for her, too?

As their worlds change around them, Jill and Mandy must learn to both let go and hold on, and that nothing is as easy—or as difficult—as it seems.

I've been unsure about this one for a little while now - on the fence about whether or not to get it and give it a go. However, in the last week, it seems that it's been popping up more and more, and I've read some really positive reviews of it in that time. So, I think I've finally decided to add it to the wishlist, and when I get round to getting a copy, see what I think of it myself.
It sounds like it's going to be a really moving, emotional read, but hopefully it'll have a happy ending and won't be too upsetting.
If you've read this one, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it in the comments :)

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I've read it and really enjoyed it. The characters are realistic. They don't seem forced and none of them are always likeable. I think it was very well done. For this type of book the author has to be able to make it seem real for those who haven't been through any sort of similar situation and think Sara Zarr did a great job at that. :) Hopefully you'll get to it and like as much as I did.
