Waiting on Wednesday: The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner

"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 Gae Polinser's website:

While Nick Gardner’s family is falling apart, his best friend, the Scoot, is dying from a freak disease. Enter Jaycee Amato, a quirky girl with Siberian-husky eyes and an odd affinity for Of Mice and Men. She’s made a seemingly-impossible promise to the Scoot, and wants Nick’s help to keep it.

Armed only with the wisdom of Yoda, the beauty of Steinbeck, and the vaguest of plans, Nick and Jaycee set off on a secret, whirlwind journey to find the father the Scoot has never known. When everything goes awry, will the pull of gravity be enough to keep them together?

The Pull of Gravity is a coming-of-age story about friendship, first love, and the true nature of family.

Why I can't wait to read it:

Coming of age, first love, dying friend, road trip, classic novel... I don't think this could tick more boxes if it was written especially for me! Looks fantastic.
