Can’t Wait Wednesday: Start Here

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Start Here by Trish Doller


Two teens go on a life-changing sailing trip as they deal with the grief of losing their best friend in this heartwrenching, hopeful novel from the author of Something Like Normal and In a Perfect World.

Willa and Taylor were supposed to spend the summer after high school sailing from Ohio to Key West with their best friend, Finley. But Finley died before graduation, leaving them with a twenty-five-foot sailboat, a list of clues leading them to destinations along the way, and a friendship that’s hanging by a thread.

Now, Willa and Taylor have two months and two thousand miles to discover how life works without Finley—and to decide if their own friendship is worth saving.

From acclaimed author Trish Doller comes a poignant tale of forgiveness, grief, and the brilliant discoveries we make within ourselves when we least expect it.


So, I totally have a thing for travel novels?? Give me a plane, train, or automobile – and this girl is innnnnnnnnn. I will admit that I think the only boat books I’ve read in about YA are rich people contemporaries, horrible murders, Lost-esque dessert islands, or pirates fantasy – so a contemporary with an actual journey in the physical, mental, and emotional sense? Oh, yes, PLEASE. And this summary promises me sooooooooo many feels and emotions, and SOMEONE HAND ME A KLEENEX BOX STAT.


✔️ THIS BOOK IS JASMINE APPROVED! Jasmine wants nothing more than to break free of her palace walls. This book will take her to places she hasn’t imagined and challenge what she knows. 


What do you think? Is this on your book TBR as well?

  1. Yes, yes, yes! I featured this book at some point as a must read for me. I’m with you, a trip really enhances my reading experience, and you know, even better when it results in some personal growth and healing.
