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...
My Life Next Door
Author: Huntley Fitzpatrick (Facebook)
Publisher: Dial BYR
Publish Date: June 14, 2012
Genre: YA, Contemps
"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."
The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen year old Samantha wishes she was one of them… until the day Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything.
Jase can sense that his beautiful neighbor is missing something in her sterile home, and as the two fall fiercely in love, his family makes her one of their own.
But when the bottom drops out of Sam's world, which perfect family will save her–and will her perfect love survive?
I know, I know. It's contemporary, but I did make that huge confession the other day saying that I'm beginning to have a bit of a soft spot for them. So, sue me. Some of them are good - others...well, you get the picture. I've read a lot of have/have not stories, but I'm excited to read this one. My Life Next Door promises a sort of "opposites attract" vibe, all the while offering tension, love and tragedy. I'm sold. Here's hoping this is another contemporary book to add to my list of winners! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
