Waiting on Wednesday - 103

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

How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Rosie’s always been impulsive. She didn’t intend to set her cheating ex-boyfriend’s car on fire. And she never thought her attempts to make amends could be considered stalking. So when she’s served with a temporary restraining order on the first day of summer vacation, she’s heartbroken—and furious.

To put distance between Rosie and her ex, Rosie’s parents send her on a cross-country road trip with responsible, reliable neighbor Matty and his two friends. Forget freedom of the road, Rosie just wants to hitchhike home and win back her ex. But with every mile marker that passes, Rosie discovers a new sense of self…and that sometimes the best revenge is moving on. (from GoodReads)

I love road trips and summer so this sounds like the perfect combination! This novel will be released May 7, 2013.

This was one of my WOW picks today too! I'm a huge fan of rode trip books...have you read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour? It's such a good road trip book! :)

Hadn't heard of this one, but it sounds really good! Great pick!

I just heard about this today-I love her polka-dot top and I'm always a sucker for a good contemp.

Lauren - I loved Amy and Roger's Epic Detour!! Now I hope every road trip book is as good as that one! :)

Haha, this doesn't sound like a particularly believable premise -- what parents send their teen daughter on a road trip alone with other teens, esp. males, esp. after she's gotten in trouble due to overreaction to a relationship? -- BUT if we just go with it, it sounds like it could be great fun. And we love road trip novels!
