I recently attended a webinar hosted by Booklist that showcased upcoming YA titles, so I've got titles for weeks to come!
This week I'm waiting for The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner. I believe the publishers are in the process of revamping the cover, so there's no image available yet (EDIT: Here it is!)
Summary from Goodreads:
While Nick Gardner’s family is falling apart, his best friend, Scooter, is dying from a freak disease. The Scoot’s final wish is that Nick and their quirky classmate, Jaycee Amato, deliver a prized first-edition copy of Of Mice and Men to the Scoot’s father. There’s just one problem: the Scoot’s father walked out years ago and hasn’t been heard from since. So, guided by Steinbeck’s life lessons, and with only the vaguest of plans, Nick and Jaycee set off to find him.This sounds like one of those novels that makes you laugh and cry right along with the characters, I can't wait to read it! The Pull of Gavity is expected to be published on May 10, 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
Characters you’ll want to become friends with and a narrative voice that sparkles with wit make this a truly original coming-of-age story.
What are you waiting for?
Enjoy your reading!
