Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
When Travis returns home from a stint in Afghanistan, his parents are splitting up, his brother’s stolen his girlfriend and his car, and he’s haunted by nightmares of his best friend’s death. It’s not until Travis runs into Harper, a girl he’s had a rocky relationship with since middle school, that life actually starts looking up. And as he and Harper see more of each other, he begins to pick his way through the minefield of family problems and post-traumatic stress to the possibility of a life that might resemble normal again. Travis’s dry sense of humor, and incredible sense of honor, make him an irresistible and eminently lovable hero. ~From GoodReads
Why I'm Waiting ~ I think it's interesting that these books, of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are starting to come out. It reminds me of the stories from my parents' generation of returning Vietnam veterans. Also...it's a love story.
Expected publication: June 19th 2012 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens
