Waiting on Wednesday (68)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

The Summer I Learned to Fly
by Dana Reinhardt

Release Date:
July 12, 2011

Drew's a bit of a loner. She has a pet rat, her dead dad's Book of Lists, an encyclopedic knowledge of cheese from working at her mom's cheese shop, and a crush on Nick, the surf bum who works behind the counter. It's the summer before eighth grade and Drew's days seem like business as usual, until one night after closing time, when she meets a strange boy in the alley named Emmett Crane. Who he is, why he's there, where the cut on his cheek came from, and his bottomless knowledge of rats are all mysteries Drew will untangle as they are drawn closer together, and Drew enters into the first true friendship, and adventure, of her life.


Markus Zusak, the author of The Book Thief, is quoted on the cover! :O

This sounds like a light read with a hint of relationship matters, just like a Sarah Dessen book. This one is a bit younger since it takes place during the summer of eighth grade. We'll see how it goes, though. Still, it seems like a book I would love.
