Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that spotlights our most anticipated upcoming releases. It’s hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly-insane-but-definitely-excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he’s ever loved.
Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken. Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned—and learn how to write their own destiny.

Why I’m Waiting
I don’t even know where to begin with putting into words how badly I want this book. Winger is one of the best books I read in 2013 and is in my top favourites ever, and Grasshopper Jungle has a top spot in my 2014 favourites already and was so wonderfully weird and brilliant I struggled to write a review. I haven’t read his Marbury Lens series yet, but I plan on it soon. 100 Sideways Miles so crazy cool, and I know Smith will do a subject like this one justice!
What are you waiting on this week?
