Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme event created by Breaking the Spine to help showcase upcoming releases. I first learned about it through WORD for Teens.

This week I'm waiting for Pearl, by Jo Knowles.

Summary from Amazon:

Bean (née Pearl) and Henry, misfits and best friends, have the strangest mothers in town. Henry’s mom Sally never leaves the house. Bean’s mom Lexie, if she is home, is likely nursing a hangover or venting to her friend Claire about Bean’s beloved grandfather Gus, the third member of their sunny household.
Gus’s death unleashes a host of family secrets that brings them all together. And they threaten to change everything—including Bean’s relationship with Henry, her first friend, and who also might turn out to be her first love.
I loved Jumping Off Swings and know I'll enjoy this one, too--Jo Knowles has a gift for writing.

Amazon lists July 19, 2011 as the publication date.

What are you waiting for?
Enjoy your reading!
