Waiting on Wednesday: Return to Me by Justina Chen

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:

Return to Me by Justina Chen

Expected Release Date: January 15, 2012

Three months before Rebecca Muir is set to begin college, her father reveals a secret that tears the family apart: he is leaving them.

In an instant, Rebecca’s life crumbles—she has to rely on her mother now, when her whole life she’s been her father’s girl; she’s not sure she can trust her high school boyfriend; and her carefully planned-out life suddenly feels all wrong.

Reb’s journey takes her across the country and back, and is for anyone who has experienced uncertainty or betrayal. This book will inspire readers to overcome life’s challenges and come out triumphant on the other side.

I really loved Chen’s North of Beautiful, so it’s no surprise that I want to pick this one up when it’s released in January.  It looks like it’s going to be a difficult one in terms of content–this isn’t exactly the stuff of marshmallow fluff.  But Chen’s a good writer, and I’m looking forward to how she explores the hard stuff in this novel.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I think I have doubles of this ARC. I’ll have to double check at home but if you want it, I’d be happy to mail it along.

    1. I was surprised by how much I loved North of Beautiful. It had a lot of depth and stuck with me for a long time after I finished it.

  2. Oh wow I didn’t know she was writing another book. I did a review of North of Beautiful on my blog, it’s one of my most favorite books ever. Thanks for sharing and happy reading!!!!
