Waiting on Wednesday: The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi

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 Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi

Expected Release Date: June 16, 2015

Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over a no-good ex-boyfriend. Graduate from high school without any more distractions. Move away from Orlando, Florida, where she’s lived her entire life.

But Matt—the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player who just moved to town—was never part of that plan.

And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying “yes” to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.

Then Matt abruptly left town, and he broke not only Ella’s heart but those of their best friends, too. So when he shows up a year later with a plan of his own—to relive the night that brought them together—Ella isn’t sure whether Matt’s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.

In alternating then and now chapters, debut author Lauren Gibaldi crafts a charming, romantic story of first loves, lifelong friendships, uncovered secrets, and, ultimately, finding out how to be brave.

This looks like a cute little romance read for the summer.  Although some sources compare it to Susane Colasanti and Sarah Dessen (I’m not sure those are readalike authors, even), I think this is probably going to skew closer to the Colasanti side of things.  At any rate, I’m sure it will be a quick read, good for an afternoon escape.

What are you waiting on this week?
