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

Wednesday is my absolute 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: April 7th 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The truth is that Jess knows she screwed up.
She's made mistakes, betrayed her best friend, and now she's paying for it. Her dad is making her spend the whole summer volunteering at the local soup kitchen.

The truth is she wishes she was the care-free party-girl everyone thinks she is.
She pretends it's all fine. That her "perfect" family is fine. But it's not. And no one notices the lie...until she meets Flynn. He's the only one who really sees her. The only one who listens.

The truth is that Jess is falling apart – and no one seems to care.
But Flynn is the definition of "the wrong side of the tracks." When Jess's parents look at him they only see the differences-not how much they need each other. They don't get that the person who shouldn't fit in your world... might just be the one to make you feel like you belong.

I haven't had the chance to read this author's previous books, but I'm looking forward to reading this one. It sounds perfect for me.

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. i've read a few of gurtler's earlier ya novels and i quite enjoyed them. i think her earlier ones were a lot more issues-heavy than her later ones but that's okay with me because i prefer lighter contemporary ya. i love the sound of a "wrong side of the tracks" guy :)

    hope you can stop by my WoW Post.
