Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
This week I'm waiting on...
Her and Me and You by Lauren Strasnick.
Summary from Goodreads.com: First love, broken friendships, and heartache all play a part in this evocative, voice-driven novel about Alex, a girl whose world is ripped apart when her father’s affair splits her family in two.
Alex moves with her mess of a mother to a new town, where she is befriended by hot, enigmatic Fred—and alternately flirted with and cold-shouldered by Fred’s twin sister, Adina. Others warn Alex to steer clear of the twins, whose sibling relationship is considered abnormal at best, but there’s just something about Fred—and something about Adina—that draws Alex to them and makes her want to be part of their crazy world…no matter the consequences.
Doesn't this sound amazing? I'm getting more and more into realistic fiction these days. I'm not really sure what to expect from this one, but I think the amibiguity is going to be part of its charm. Plus, twins are just basically fascinating, and that's a fact.
And while I know the cover for this one isn't exactly seasonal right now, come Autumn it will be. And it's lovely.
This one hits the US on October 5th 2010. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a UK publication too.
