Waiting on Wednesday - 131

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books are going to be released.

Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller

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. (from GoodReads)

I think this sounds very intense but looks like it could have a happy ending! Where the Stars Still Shine will be released September 24, 2013.

Holy cow. Sounds awesome -- and yes, intense, but we often like that. ;P Great cover and title, too!

I enjoyed Something Like Normal but thought it was a little on the short side so I hope I find this story more fulfilling.
