"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted 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:
From author Mia Castile's website:
Gianna and Alex have just buried their mother. Now they have to move back to St. Petersburg, Florida to live with their recovering alcoholic father. All the new changes, however, may be more than Gia can bear. While Alex turns to football and flirting with girls, she holds her emotions inside. Together they make sense of their new lives as Gianna finds herself falling for Travis. Travis is not without his own issues. Between his insecurities and other people meddling in his life, he finds strength in Gianna. He vows to be there for her doing everything he can to make it happen. The Ocean is a story of loss, redemption, and finding happiness in the middle of it all.
Why I'm waiting for it: While I'd never judge a book by its cover the sheer gorgeousness of The Ocean's got my attention for long enough to see the plot summary and the awesome trailer which is on Mia's website. I'm a sucker for books about new beginnings or people returning to their past so am really looking forward to seeing how Gianna and Alex cope back in St Petersburg - and from the trailer, the central pairing sounds really great.
