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 Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
Expected Release Date: June 4, 2013
Set in the fictional beach town of Colby, where several of Dessen’s novels take place, it features 18-year-old Emmeline, who is spending her last summer before college working for her family’s vacation rental business and enjoying a summer romance with a young aspiring filmmaker.

Okay, you guys. I like Sarah Dessen. Her early books are some of my favorites, and I think she’s definitely to be credited with the rise of contemporary YA. I think she’s crafted some really thoughtful, powerful stories featuring strong female narrators.
But. But. But. There’s a formula to her writing. This one is no different, and totally fits the classic Dessen formula. Does that mean I don’t want to read it? Of course not! I’m excited about revisiting the town of Colby and seeing what Dessen has to offer this time.
I do, however, wish the cover wasn’t so generic. Also, could Dessen’s name be any bigger? I think not.
What are you waiting on this week?
