Waiting on Wednesday 40

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

Things in Delilah Hannaford’s life have a tendency to fall apart. She used to be a good student, but she can’t seem to keep it together anymore. Her “boyfriend” isn’t much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition.

Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family’s painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?

Rich with emotion, FIXING DELILAH is a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery. Release Date: December 1st, 2010
Lately I've been craving contemporary YA and Sarh Ockler's latest novel seems to fit the bill! I still need to read Ockler's Twenty Boy Summer but her sophmore novel has me all kinds of excited. I really love that cover too :) What are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I've been waiting on this forever! Great pick! :)

  2. Thanks Pirate Penguin! I hope you enjoy Fixing Delilah when you finally get the chance to read it! :-)
