Waiting On Wednesday [23]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Five Summers by Una LaMarche!


The summer we were nine: Emma was branded "Skylar's friend Emma" by the infamous Adam Loring....

The summer we were ten: Maddie realized she was too far into her lies to think about telling the truth...

The summer we were eleven: Johanna totally freaked out during her first game of Spin the Bottle...

The summer we were twelve: Skylar's love letters from her boyfriend back home were exciting to all of us - except Skylar...

Our last summer together: Emma and Adam almost kissed. Jo found out Maddie's secret. Skylar did something unthinkable.. and whether we knew it then or not, five summers of friendship began to fall apart. Three years after the fateful last night of camp, the four of us are coming back to camp for reunion weekend - and for a second chance.

I don't know about you guys but I LOVE summer camp books no matter how cheesy or unrealistic they might be. They just remind me of all my summer camp days sleeping away from home, hanging out with friends, and hoping that one of the cute camp guys might actually like me back. Unfortunately, my real life summer camp experiences do not include being wooed by any cute boys. Phooey. I guess part of why I love these books so much is because it allows me to live vicariously through them. :P

Anyhow this book sounds AWESOME. Not only is it a summer camp book, but it's a friendship summer camp book, and it chronicles five summers of summer camp! SO MUCH SUMMER CAMP YES. When summer rolls around this book will be at the top of my reading list for sure!

What book are YOU waiting on today? Be sure to let me know and link me to your blog so I can check it out!
