Waiting on Wednesday: The Whole Thing Together

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

The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares
Pub. Date: April 25, 2017



Goodreads says, "Summer for Sasha and Ray means the sprawling old house on Long Island. Since they were children, they’ve shared almost everything—reading the same books, running down the same sandy footpaths to the beach, eating peaches from the same market, laughing around the same sun-soaked dining table. Even sleeping in the same bed, on the very same worn cotton sheets. But they’ve never met. Sasha’s dad was once married to Ray’s mom, and together they had three daughters: Emma, the perfectionist; Mattie, the beauty; and Quinn, the favorite. But the marriage crumbled and the bitterness lingered. Now there are two new families—and neither one will give up the beach house that holds the memories, happy and sad, of summers past. The choices we make come back to haunt us; the effect on our destinies ripples out of our control…or does it? This summer, the lives of Sasha, Ray, and their siblings intersect in ways none of them ever dreamed, in a novel about family relationships, keeping secrets, and most of all, love."
I am excited that Ann Brashares has a new novel coming out; I really liked The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. This one sounds like a great summer novel. What do you guys think?

  1. I'd be willing to give this a try. I like that it is focused on family relationships instead of romance. Something different for YA contemporary :)

  4. I didn't know this was the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants author! I think I've read one of her other books, but I can't remember the title now. Fail. This sounds intriguing though, I'm always fascinated by family dynamics!
