Waiting on Wednesday: Saint Anything

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

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Pub. Date: May 5, 2015



Goodreads says, "Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident? Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time. The uber-popular Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth novel, sure to delight her legions of fans."
My summer just doesn't feel right unless I read a Sarah Dessen novel, so I am thrilled she has a new one coming out this May. I can't wait to get it in my beach bag. This cover is very different than some of her others, but I really like the change.  What do you guys think?

  1. I'm looking forward to this one as well! I've only read about 3 Dessen novels in my entire life. Sad, isn't it?

    1. I haven't read all of her novels, but most of them. My favorite is The Truth About Forever. Do you follow her on Twitter? Her tweets are the absolute best. She is always saying what I am thinking. :) Thanks for visiting, Joy!
