Waiting on Wednesday (24)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.

This week, I've chosen...
Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay
Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books
Release Date: January 1, 2012
My wish
is to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father.

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? can you even know it until you've lost it?

Love and Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.

Aaaah, this sounds so good! I love the little excerpt from the summary, especially since it kind of matches the cover. L&L sounds romantic and delightful - can't wait!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

(BTW: I am alive.)
