Waiting on Wednesday - 7

Ahh, the smell of upcoming books. Okay, you can't smell them yet, but you can get excited for them, which is the purpose of Waiting on Wednesday. This weekly book lusting was created by the lovely Jill at Breaking The Spine.

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler

"Don't worry, Anna. I'll tell her, okay? Just let me think about the best way to do it."
"Okay."
"Promise me? Promise you won't say anything?"
"Don't worry." I laughed. "It's our secret, right?"

According to her best friend Frankie, twenty days in Zanzibar Bay is the perfect opportunity to have a summer fling, and if they meet one boy every day, there's a pretty good chance Anna will find her first summer romance. Anna lightheartedly agrees to the game, but there's something she hasn't told Frankie---she's already had that kind of romance, and it was with Frankie's older brother, Matt, just before his tragic death one year ago. Beautifully written and emotionally honest, this is a debut novel that explores what it truly means to love someone and what it means to grieve, and ultimately, how to make the most of every single moment this world has to offer.
This book looks like it could be funny, but sad too because of the brother's death. I think it looks interesting, though, and the cover is gorgeous. Twenty Boy Summer will be released on June 1, 2009, right in time for summer.
