Waiting on Wednesday - 22

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers to get excited about upcoming books.

Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt

On the last day of her junior year, Hannah's boyfriend Ryan dumped her. Facing a summer of loneliness, Hannah turns to her best friend Ava for comfort. Ava does what BFFs do: she stays by Hannah's side...until it's time for Ava to head up to Maine for the summer. Also left behind is Ava's boyfriend, Noah, who's such a great guy he gets Hannah a job at the diner he waits tables at. Slowly, Hannah comes out of her funk thanks to Noah's good conversation and their fun times at the diner. But things get complicated when their friendship turns into attraction--and one night, into a passionate kiss. The novel opens on the first day of senior year; the day Hannah is going to see Ava, Ryan, and Noah all in one place. Over the course of the day secrets and betrayals are revealed, and alliances are broken and reformed. In the end, everyone is paired up once again, but not the way you might think...

I love contemporary fiction and haven't been reading a lot of it lately. This story seems simple yet I hope it turns out to be really good! Look for it on July 12, 2011.

Maine seems to be a popular place in which to place stories.
Some get it write (Lauren Oliver) and others must think Mainers don't know how to read!
