Waiting on Wednesday: Second Chance Summer

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Pub. Date: May 8, 2012



Goodreads says, "Taylor's family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then they get news that changes everything: Her father has pancreatic cancer, and it's stage four – meaning that there is basically nothing to be done. Her parents decide that the family will spend his last months together at their old summerhouse in the Pocono Mountains.  Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven't actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is suddenly around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.  As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they've ever been before. But all of them very aware that they're battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love."


*I know this book's publication is a long way off, but I can't contain my excitement.  Second Chance Summer sounds rather serious, but I like that it has the potential to be a powerful read. Plus, I ADORED Amy & Roger's Epic Detour.  And did I mention that this takes place at the Pocono Mountains? I love the Poconos; in fact, my parents used to own a house there when I was a little kid.  This book is just another reason why I already can't wait for next summer.
