Waiting on Wednesday (3)

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

This week's WoW feature is:

Dreams of Significant Girls by Christina Garcia
(Goodreads | Amazon)
Release Date: July 12, 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

Goodreads Synopsis:
Brought together each summer at a boarding school in Switzerland, three girls learn a lot more than just French and European culture. Shirin, an Iranian princess; Ingrid, a German-Canadian eccentric; and Vivien, a Cuban-Jewish New Yorker culinary phenom, are thrown into each other's lives when they become roommates. This is a story of 3 paths slowly beginning to cross and merge as they spend the year apart, but the summers together. Through navigating the social-cultural shoals of the school, developing their adolescence, and learning the confusing and conflicting legacies of their families' past, Shirin, Ingrid, and Vivien form an unbreakable bond. This story takes readers on a journey into the lives of very different girls and the bonds that keep them friends.

So... I do have this eGalley (thanks to Simon & Schuster) but I couldn't resist putting this up as WoW. I can't wait to read this - soon!

Crap, comments are screwy again... it appears to be just this post, I don't understand. I've already responded to 4-5 comments and now they've disappeared.
