Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday has become my favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

Expected publication: September 1st 2015 by St. Martin's Griffin

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A modern-day Romeo and Juliet story in which a wealthy Southern boy falls in love with an undocumented Mexican girl and together they face perils in their hostile Georgia town.

Evan, a soccer star and the nephew of a conservative Southern Senator, has never wanted for much -- except a functional family. Alma has lived in Georgia since she was two-years-old, excels in school, and has a large, warm Mexican family. Never mind their differences, the two fall in love, and they fall hard. But when ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) begins raids on their town, Alma knows that she needs to tell Evan her secret. There's too much at stake. But how to tell her country-club boyfriend that she’s an undocumented immigrant? That her whole family and most of her friends live in the country without permission. What follows is a beautiful, nuanced, well-paced exploration of the complications of immigration, young love, defying one’s family, and facing a tangled bureaucracy that threatens to completely upend two young lives.

This sounds like it could be an interesting story.

What are you waiting on this week?

    1. Yes, I did get a makeover from Lisseth over at Read-a-Holicz.

      This is a debut author, so I don't know anything about her writing, but I think the book sounds interesting. Thanks for stopping by today Tracy.

  8. Aww, this sounds like a very angst read. And heartbreaking if it's a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Hope you enjoy reading it and thanks for stopping by My WoW.

  10. This sounds so heartbreakingly good! I have not heard of a book that deals with immigrant love with teens or young adults - should be very interesting! Great pick!
