Waiting on Wednesday 43

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

The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner
While Nick Gardner’s family is falling apart, his best friend, Scooter, is dying from a freak disease. The Scoot’s final wish is that Nick and their quirky classmate, Jaycee Amato, deliver a prized first-edition copy of Of Mice and Men to the Scoot’s father. There’s just one problem: the Scoot’s father walked out years ago and hasn’t been heard from since. So, guided by Steinbeck’s life lessons, and with only the vaguest of plans, Nick and Jaycee set off to find him.

Characters you’ll want to become friends with and a narrative voice that sparkles with wit make this a truly original coming-of-age story. {taken from goodreads}
No cover for this one right now but I have a good feeling about this book :) You can find out more about Gae Polisner and her work over at her site which is really nice. I love her photo where she's in the water!
