Waiting on Wednesday (113)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

OF COURSE I AM WAITING ON THIS BOOK. The author is one of my favorites. Seriously, when she finally had a signing in Seattle I bought four extra copies of one of her books that I didn't need so I'd have enough signing tickets to get all the books I owned signed. So this book? I WANT IT.

Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?

Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.

The uber-popular Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth novel, sure to delight her legions of fans.

Are you waiting on a book from a favorite author this week?


  1. AMAZING PICK! Sarah Dessen is one of my favorite authors too. The moment a book of hers comes out I just drop everything else.

  2. Of course, who isn't excited for another Sarah Dessen book?! I can't wait for this one. Have a nice Wednesday :)
