Waiting on Wednesday: GEORGIA PEACHES AND OTHER FORBIDDEN FRUIT by Jaye Robin Brown

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:

Joanna meets the perfect girl for her and must decide whether to break a promise that could change everything for her and her family or lose out on love in this charming young adult romance that’s perfect for fans of Julie Murphy’s Dumplin’ and Becky Albertalli’s Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Joanna Gordon has been out and proud for years, but when her popular radio evangelist father remarries and decides to move all three of them from Atlanta to the more conservative Rome, Georgia, he asks Jo to do the impossible: to lie low for the rest of her senior year. And Jo reluctantly agrees.

Although it is (mostly) much easier for Jo to fit in as a straight girl, things get complicated when she meets Mary Carlson, the oh-so-tempting sister of her new friend at school. But Jo couldn’t possibly think of breaking her promise to her dad. Even if she’s starting to fall for the girl. Even if there’s a chance Mary Carlson might be interested in her, too. Right?

Why I'm Waiting

Last year at her signing for No Place to Fall Jaye Robin Brown shared a little bit about this book and it immediately caught my attention and I knew I would want to read it. It doesn't come out until August, but it definitely sounds like it is worth waiting for.


  1. Hmmmm, I don't think I've seen this book before but it sounds like a really great read! I loved Simon Vs. and since it's mentioned in the summary ;)
