Waiting On Wednesday

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

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

The Moon and More

Many of you who regularly drop by my blog or chat with me on twitter know, I am not a big fan of contemporaries. In fact I tend to steer clear of them. Sarah Dessen books are one of my rare exceptions. I will read ANYTHING that this woman writes. Her book are just... AH! Perfect. She gets it. lol

So if you value my opinion ... and you haven't read anything by Sarah Dessen? DO IT NOW!
- My Favorites are The Truth About Forever, Just Listen and Lock and Key  .

Have you read any books by Sarah Dessen? What is your favorite!?

  3. I hadn't read anything but Sarah Dessen until very recently when I read EVERYTHING by Sarah Dessen and loved it. She's really amazing and you're so right when you say she just gets it. I can't wait for this one either!

  4. I have never read anything by Sarah Dressen...I mostly stay away from contemp too so I've not encountered any of her books. Perhaps I should look into them. :-)

  5. My favorite Sarah Dessen books are The Truth about Forever and Along for the Ride ^_^
