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:
Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour
Expected Release Date: May 15, 2014
A love letter to the craft and romance of film and fate in front of—and behind—the camera from the award-winning author of Hold Still.
A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.
Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.
(Summary via Goodreads)
I didn’t love LaCour’s The Disenchantments, but I definitely understood the appeal and thought that LaCour had that something. So there was never any doubt that I’d come back to her work at some point. This offering looks like the perfect place for me to revisit LaCour as an author, because it’s right up my alley: film, Hollywood, coming-of-age. Sold. This looks like it has the potential to be a great GLBT novel for the YA world, and will likely have some crossover appeal, too.
What are you waiting on this week?
