Waiting on Wednesday, #20

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
Here's my selection for this week...
The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
Expected Publication: June 4, 2013
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Purchase: AmazonBarnes & Noble

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. 

Well, there’s not much of a book description out there, but we’ve got a cover and a snippet that she’s taking us back to Colby! That’s enough for me to start my happy dance that Sarah Dessen is coming out with another YA contemporary! I love her beach side setting books and uncomplicated characters. Dessen is the perfect fix when I'm looking for a light YA romance. I enjoy her stories as they were the first contemporaries I explored in this genre. So excited to get my hands on her upcoming release. :D
Soooo, what book are you waiting on???


  1. Love the cover and plot sounds interesting too. Great pick!
