Waiting on Wednesday (201)

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 The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares (4/25/17):

Description on Goodreads:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series was a worldwide phenomenon, and she’s back with a beautifully written novel about love, class differences, and betrayal playing out over the course of a fractured American family’s Long Island summer.

Summer for Sasha and Ray means the sprawling old house on Long Island. Since they were children, they’ve shared almost everything—reading the same books, running down the same sandy footpaths to the beach, eating peaches from the same market, laughing around the same sun-soaked dining table. Even sleeping in the same bed, on the very same worn cotton sheets. But they’ve never met.

Sasha’s dad was once married to Ray’s mom, and together they had three daughters: Emma, the perfectionist; Mattie, the beauty; and Quinn, the favorite. But the marriage crumbled and the bitterness lingered. Now there are two new families—and neither one will give up the beach house that holds the memories, happy and sad, of summers past.

The choices we make come back to haunt us; the effect on our destinies ripples out of our control…or does it? This summer, the lives of Sasha, Ray, and their siblings intersect in ways none of them ever dreamed, in a novel about family relationships, keeping secrets, and most of all, love.
Why I’m Waiting:
This sounds like one amazingly dramatic summer story. And I’m all for it. It kind of reminds me a bit of We Were Liars. Also, I love Ann Brashares. I read everything she writes. She had at me Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. And she has yet to let me go. I love the focus on family and friendship that her books have. I also love her very realistic feeling romantic relationships. I know I will like this next one.
What are you waiting on this week?
