This week, my Waiting On Wednesday pick is: Joyride by Anna Banks.
It's been years since Carly Vega's parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico. Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber's dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn't acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfil whatever his conservative father expects. All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to not do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they've been living according to others. Carly and Arden's journey toward their true hearts-and one another-is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.
This book just sounds awesome and I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy! It looks so summery and it's 35 degrees here in England (yes, England! I know!) today, so I'm roasting in the sunshine and starting to get in a really summery mood!
Joyride is released in the UK on the 13th July by Feiwel & Friends.
What about you? What books can't you wait to get a copy of??
