Waiting on Wednesday: Boys Like You





Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

What am I waiting on this week? Oh, so many things :) But here's one…


Boys Like You
by Juliana Stone
To be published by Sourcebooks
in May 2014


Sixteen-year-old Monroe Blackwell is sent from New York to spend the summer at her grandmother’s in the sleepy town of Twin Oaks, Louisiana. She’s trying to find her way back to where she was before–back to before Malcolm. Back to before her world fell apart.  At seventeen, Nathan Everets has learned that one mistake can change everything. Two months ago, he was on top of the world, and now he’s spending the summer working for his uncle–a court-appointed job, while his best friend is struggling to live. And all of that is his fault. Nathan is the reason his best friend, Trevor, is in a coma.
As these two teens are thrown together, they each slowly begin to heal–they fall in love–and for both Monroe and Nathan, getting back to good, means facing their past and hopefully, finding their future.
My take: I love "city girl goes to the country" stories, and I'm really in the mood for some romantic stories -- maybe it's the colder weather….

What are you waiting for this week?  Let me know in comments and leave a link so I can visit you back :)
