Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Summer My Life Began by Shannon Greenland
Expected release: May 10, 2012
Elizabeth Margaret—better known as Em—has always known what life would contain: an internship at her father’s firm, a degree from Harvard and a career as a lawyer. The only problem is that it’s not what she wants. When she gets the opportunity to get away from it all and spend a month with the aunt she never knew, she jumps at the chance. While there, Em pursues her secret dream of being a chef, and she also learns that her family has kept some significant secrets from her, too. And then there’s Cade, the laid-back local surfer boy who seems to be everything Em isn’t. Naturally, she can’t resist him, and as their romance blossoms, Em feels she is living on her own terms for the first time.

Maybe it’s the fact that it’s starting to get really, really cold, but I find myself looking forward to books about summer. This one looks like it’s going to be a cute, frothy little read, and I can’t wait to get into it when it’s released in May. Coming-of-age novels are my favorite, and this one fits that theme.
What are you waiting on this week?
