Waiting on Wedn-Thursday Wk 37 (oops!)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by the fabulous Jill over at Breaking the Spine!:)
(This didn't post yesterday for some reason, so I'm posting it today xD.)
What I'm waiting on this week:
*I love this cover!:)*
Plot blurb:

A heartrending, bold novel in verse about family, identity, and forgiveness

Mira is just beginning her senior year of high school when she discovers her father with his male lover. Her world–and everything she thought she knew about her family–is shattered instantly. Unable to comprehend the lies, betrayal, and secrets that–unbeknownst to Mira–have come to define and keep intact her family’s existence, Mira distances herself from her sister and closest friends as a means of coping. But her father’s sexual orientation isn’t all he's kept hidden. A shocking health scare brings to light his battle with HIV. As Mira struggles to make sense of the many fractures in her family's fabric and redefine her wavering sense of self, she must find a way to reconnect with her dad–while there is still time. 
Told in raw, exposed free verse, Skyscraping reminds us that there is no one way to be a family.

Releases June 2nd, 2015

I'm not a huge fan of Young Adult verse in general, but this plot blurb reminds me a little of My Life After Now (the themes are a bit similar), which I liked, so we'll see! :)
What are you waiting on this week?
