The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin
August 7th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile
One summer chasing tornadoes could finally change Jane's life for the better
Seventeen-year-old Jane McAllister can't quite admit her mother's alcoholism is spiraling dangerously out of control until she drives drunk, nearly killing them and Jane's best friend.
Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left the problems at home years ago for college. A summer with him and his tornado-chasing buddies may just provide the time and space Jane needs to figure out her life and whether it still includes her mother. But she struggles with her anger at Ethan for leaving home and feels guilty--is she also abandoning her mom just when she needs Jane most? The carefree trip turned journey of self-discovery quickly becomes more than Jane bargained for, especially when the devilishly handsome Max steps into the picture.
This book sounds amazing, has a beautiful cover that seems to represent the book extremely well, and is a contemporary YA book. I've been on a successful roll with them lately. I hope to keep it going with this one! It is only 2 months away!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
