Waiting on Wednesday: Nantucket Blue

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Nantucket Blue
by Leila Howland
Published by Disney Hyperion
Publication Date:  May 7, 2013

(from Goodreads)

For Cricket Thompson, a summer like this one will change everything. A summer spent on Nantucket with her best friend, Jules Clayton, and the indomitable Clayton family. A summer when she’ll make the almost unattainable Jay Logan hers. A summer to surpass all dreams.

Some of this turns out to be true. Some of it doesn’t.

When Jules and her family suffer a devastating tragedy that forces the girls apart, Jules becomes a stranger whom Cricket wonders whether she ever really knew. And instead of lying on the beach working on her caramel-colored tan, Cricket is making beds and cleaning bathrooms to support herself in paradise for the summer.

But it’s the things Cricket hadn’t counted on--most of all, falling hard for someone who should be completely off-limits--that turn her dreams into an exhilarating, bittersweet reality.

A beautiful future is within her grasp, and Cricket must find the grace to embrace it. If she does, her life could be the perfect shade of Nantucket blue.

The cover reveal for this book last week really caught my attention, but it is more than just a pretty cover that makes me want to read this book. The synopsis reveals that this will likely be a heart-wrenching read with a lot of character growth. And I love books set in the summer when possibilities seem endless. (It's a little weird to be thinking about summer books when it was snowing yesterday).


  1. Though the book may be a cute read the cover is every bit of a cliche. Thanks for sharing though! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

  2. I think I have another book I need to add to my TBR list!!! Thanks for spotlighting it and Happy Halloween!! Please check out my WoW!
