Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday was created by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post where you share the books you can't wait to read! Check out the Waiting on Wednesday posts on my affiliate, Amber Skye's blog, Reading Addict! This week's Waiting on Wednesday post is about the upcoming novel, Girl Saves Boy by Steph Bowe!

About the Book:
The first time we met, Jewel Valentine saved my life.



Isn’t it enough having your very own terminal disease, without your mother dying? Or your father dating your Art teacher?
No wonder Sacha Thomas ends up in the lake that Saturday evening…
But the real question is: how does he end up in love with Jewel Valentine?
With the help of quirky teenage prodigies Little Al and True Grisham, Sacha and Jewel have a crazy adventure, with a little lobster emancipation along the way.
But Sacha’s running out of time, and Jewel has secrets of her own.
Girl Saves Boy is a hugely talented debut novel, funny and sad, silly and wise. It’s a story of life, death, love… and garden gnomes.

My thoughts:  The reason why I was drawn to this book is the age of the author. The author, Steph Bowe, is only sixteen! After reading the premise for the book, I am now even more excited to read it. I think the author's age will show in the believablility of her characters, because she can relate to them easily. This book is out now in Australia, and should be published in the US later this year!

  1. A sixteen year-old author? Impressive. That fact alone draws me to the book. Can't wait until it comes out!
