Waiting on Wednesday (140)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

First off, HI, COVER. Secondly, I was first intrigued by this--after seeing its cover and title--when I saw that it takes place in Aberdeen, because, though it isn't Aberdeen, there's an Aberdeen in Washington--over near the good ol' Pacific Ocean. Also, the book itself sounds unique, so it'll be interesting to read it and see how it all plays out.

From the critically acclaimed author of The List comes a stunning new novel about a girl who must say goodbye to everything she knows after a storm wreaks havoc on her hometown.
Aberdeen is drowning.

Keeley Hewitt always has a joke to crack. Except there is nothing funny about her life right now. Her hometown of Aberdeen has always been known for flooding, but after one last terrible storm, the entire town has been told they must evacuate by the end of the summer…for good.

How will she say goodbye to everything and everyone she has ever known?

Most of the Aberdeen residents happily take the generous payout and look forward to starting over someplace new. But Keeley’s dad isn’t swayed by the overtures of officials or the sheriff’s threats. He refuses to evacuate their family, and Keeley goes from being the funny girl in school, to the last girl in Aberdeen.

As the town empties out, two boys compete for her heart. One is a boy she’s had a crush on forever, and the other is one she thinks she could fall in love with. But the water is rising higher and higher, and Keeley is faced with losing everything she’s ever known, and the promise of things she’s only ever wished for…
