Waiting on Wednesday: In a Perfect World

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

In a Perfect World by Trish Doller 
Pub. Date: May 23, 2017


Goodreads says, "Caroline Kelly is excited to be spending her summer vacation working at the local amusement park with her best friend, exploring weird Ohio with her boyfriend, and attending soccer camp with the hope she’ll be her team’s captain in the fall.  But when Caroline’s mother is hired to open an eye clinic in Cairo, Egypt, Caroline’s plans are upended. Caroline is now expected to spend her summer and her senior year in a foreign country, away from her friends, her home, and everything she’s ever known.  With this move, Caroline predicts she’ll spend her time navigating crowded streets, eating unfamiliar food, and having terrible bouts of homesickness. But what she finds instead is a culture that surprises her, a city that astounds her, and a charming, unpredictable boy who challenges everything she thought she knew about life, love, and privilege.  From critically acclaimed author Trish Doller comes an honest, hopeful, and romantic story about the barriers we tear down for the people and places we love most."

Doesn't this sound fantastic? The fact that it takes place in Egypt make it a really unique "summer read." Also, how gorgeous is this cover? I think it may be one of my favorites of 2017.  Let me know your thoughts.

  2. I love the cover and this does sound fantastic! I haven't read anything set in modern Egypt. It's something different for a YA novel. Usually if a teen character has to go to another country it is somewhere in Europe so this is a good change. Great pick!
