Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Photobucket
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

As I've said before, I'm not a huge fan of contemporary fiction. But sometimes a contemporary book comes a long that makes me rethink my choices. I don't know what it is, but there is something about The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin that has be intrigued. Maybe it's the cover. Or maybe it's the mysteriousness of the synopsis I found in the Putnam 2012 catalog. There is a boy... a dangerous, mysterious boy... that comes into play with the outcome of this novel. Interested? Well, you'll have to wait patiently with me until August 2012 to grab this little beauty. 


The Waiting SkySeventeen-year-old Jane can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to work, that the bills are paid when there’s money to pay them, and that no one knows her mom is so messed up. But when Jane’s mom drives drunk almost killing both them and Jane’s best friend, Jane can no longer deny her mom is spiraling out of control. Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left years ago to go to college. A summer away with him and his tornado chasing buddies may just provide the time and space she needs to figure out whether her life still includes her motherSeventeen-year-old Jane can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to work, that the bills are paid when there’s money to pay them, and that no one knows her mom is so messed up.

I'm not sure about this one... I don't seem to like books dealing with parental alcoholism much...
