Waiting on Wednesday 9/8

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is weekly event hosted by Jilli 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 am particularly excited for...

Title: Her and Me and You
Author: Lauren Strasnick
Release Date: October 5, 2010




First love, broken friendships, and heartache all play a part in this evocative, voice-driven novel about Alex, a girl whose world is ripped apart when her father’s affair splits her family in two.

Alex moves with her mess of a mother to a new town, where she is befriended by hot, enigmatic Fred—and alternately flirted with and cold-shouldered by Fred’s twin sister, Adina. Others warn Alex to steer clear of the twins, whose sibling relationship is considered abnormal at best, but there’s just something about Fred—and something about Adina—that draws Alex to them and makes her want to be part of their crazy world…no matter the consequences.

Taken from GoodReads.


Her and Me and You sounds perfectly edgy, dark, and twisty for my liking, eh? I think the dynamic between the brother and sister will add an interesting and engaging twist your average teen romance, and that intrigues. It sounds like a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but I think the emotions seem like they'll be genuine and chaotic...all which make for a great read (in my opinion). Plus, my cover lust love is perfectly satisfied by the lovely cover!
