Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...
Author: Frances O'Roark Dowell
Release Date: March 22, 2011
So, what’s wrong with normal? Well, kind of everything. She knows that, of course, why else would she learn bass and join Jam Band, how else would she know to idolize infamous wild-child and high school senior Emma (her best friend Sarah’s older sister), why else would she get arrested while doing a school project on a local freedom school (jail was not part of the assignment). And, why else would she kind of be falling in "like" with a boy named Monster—yes, that is his real name. Janie was going for normal, but she missed her mark by about ten miles…and we mean that as a compliment.

Something about 10 Miles Past Normal speaks to me. I'm excited to read about (and meet) a no-holds-barred, quirky, and lovable heroine that many people can relate to. I think 10 Miles Past Normal sounds like the perfect coming-of-age tale blended with just enough humour and romance to satisfy my literary appetite. Plus, I just can't resist that cover! What is it with me and blues these days? What do you think...and what are you waiting on this week?
