“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. Every week, book bloggers all over the world showcase and share upcoming releases that we want to receive, read and devour.
Here is my pick of the week:
Title: Where the Stars Still Shine
Author: Trish Doller
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
To-Be-Released: September 24, 2013
Pre-Order: [Amazon.com][The Book Depository]
Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She’s never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love — even with someone who seems an improbable choice — is more than just a possibility.
Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.
“Trish Doller writes strong, gutsy characters that you can’t help caring for and Callie is no exception. Her journey is heartbreaking and powerful.” — Melina Marchetta, Printz Award winning author of Jellicoe Road
