Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The week's WoW feature is:

Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release Date: August 2, 2012



Seventeen-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 mother. (Goodreads)

OK, so there was a time when I wanted to be a Storm Chaser. I read books about it and watched the movie Twister over and over... mix that with a heart-wrenching story about a girl dealing with her mom's alcoholism and figuring out what is best for herself... Yeah, I'm already hooked.

What book are you anxiously waiting for?
