Waiting on Wednesday (24)

From the author of My Life Next Door comes a swoony summertime romance full of expectation and regret, humor and hard questions.

Gwen Castle's Biggest Mistake Ever, Cassidy Somers, is slumming it as a yard boy on her Nantucket-esque island this summer. He's a rich kid from across the bridge in Stony Bay, and she hails from a family of fishermen and housecleaners who keep the island's summer people happy. Gwen worries a life of cleaning houses will be her fate too, but just when it looks like she'll never escape her past—or the island—Gwen's dad gives her some shocking advice. Sparks fly and secret histories unspool as Gwen spends a gorgeous, restless summer struggling to resolve what she thought was true—about the place she lives, the people she loves, and even herself—with what really is.

A magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth, this is for fans of Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, and Deb Caletti.
Coming April 15th, right in line with all the ready-for-the-summer contemporaries, What I Thought Was True is Huntley Fitzpatrick's next summertime romance.  I read My Life Next Door and liked it, even if I had some issues with the main character.  I finished My Life Next Door with curiosity about what Huntley Fitzpatrick was going to do next.  I'm a bit skeptical though -- "a magnetic, push-me-pull-me romance with depth"?  Hmm...

Let me know in the comments what's on your WoW list!
