Anise Sawyer plans to spend every minute of summer with her friends: surfing, chowing down on fish tacos drizzled with wasabi balsamic vinegar, and throwing bonfires that blaze until dawn. But when a serious car wreck leaves her aunt, a single mother of three, with two broken legs, it forces Anise to say goodbye for the first time to Santa Cruz, the waves, her friends, and even a kindling romance, and fly with her dad to Nebraska for the entire summer. Living in Nebraska isn’t easy. Anise spends her days caring for her three younger cousins in the childhood home of her runaway mom, a wild figure who’s been flickering in and out of her life since birth, appearing for weeks at a time and then disappearing again for months, or even years, without a word.
Complicating matters is Lincoln, a one-armed, charismatic skater who pushes Anise to trade her surfboard for a skateboard. As Anise draws closer to Lincoln and takes on the full burden and joy of her cousins, she loses touch with her friends back home – leading her to one terrifying question: will she turn out just like her mom and spend her life leaving behind the ones she loves
Hi everyone!! thank-you so much for stopping by today.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Why I´m Waiting
I have been following Laura Silverman for quite some time now. She’s a super lovely human being. She also has severe chronic pain as me. Furthermore, I feel that she is a great representation of a book that deals with disabilities. You all must do yourselves a favor and follow her HERE on twitter. I’m very eager for her upcoming novel “Girl out of water.”
This book deals with some topics that I myself have experience with. But I’m mostly eager to see how Laura Silverman will portray this topic. in addition, I feel that this book will be a great addition to the diverse books list. That we so desperately need.
What do you lovelies think? Have you heard about this book?
