Waiting on Wednesday (117)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen (5/5/15):
Description on Goodreads:
Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?

Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.

The uber-popular Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth novel, sure to delight her legions of fans.
Why I’m Waiting:
It’s a new Sarah Dessen book! I was hoping for one last summer, but that’s okay. I’ll wait for them. Just keep them coming, please. This one seems to deal with a new topic, and I’m so ready to read it. Are the Chatham’s the family of the victim of the crash? Also, did anyone die in the crash? There are already things I just need to know. I know I’ve read every Dessen book out there, but wow, I did not realize there were already 11! I’m not a fan of the boring/kind of adult looking cover. Why not keep the redesign theme of the just-finished covers? Regardless, this is a book to be excited about!

  1. Oh, my goodness, I want this SO bad! I can't wait until May! The cover is definitely different. It makes me think it might be a darker story (like Dreamland). Great pick!
