Waiting on Wednesday: I'll Meet You There
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we highlight an upcoming release we are eagerly anticipating.
My WoW this week is:
I'll Meet You There
By Heather Demetrios
Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: February 3rd, 2015
If seventeen-year-old Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage months of summer. Skylar can taste the freedom - that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she's ever worked for is on the line.
Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell has a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise - a quirky motel off California's dusty Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and soon, something deeper.
This sounds like my kind of story. Lonely, broken kids who are looking for a better life and find each other while they're at it. Also, how great is that cover? Can't wait to pick this one up! What's your Waiting on Wednesday thia week?
