Waiting on Wednesday 2/24...And Birthday Bash Winner!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming novels we just can't wait for! We all know there are a ton of great books coming out this year, but this week, I'm particularly excited for...

Title: The Heart is Not a Size
Author: Beth Kephart
Release Date: March 30, 2010




Georgia knows what it means to keep secrets. She knows how to ignore things. She knows that some things are better left unsaid. . . . Or are they?

When Georgia and her best friend, Riley, travel along with nine other suburban Pennsylvania kids to Anapra, a squatters' village in the heat-flattened border city of Juarez, Mexico, secrets seem to percolate and threaten both a friendship and a life.

Certainties unravel. Reality changes. And Georgia is left to figure out who she is outside the world she's always known.
Taken from Amazon.


I just love the sound of this one. It's deep, beautiful, meaningful, and poignant. While I don't absolutely adore the cover, I think this is going to be a stunning read, and I can't wait to get my hands on it!
