Waiting on Wednesday: 9/5/12

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme that tells what we have been waiting (sometimes patiently, other times not so patiently) for! It can be an already released book that you haven't read or one that you are waiting on to be released! This meme is run by Breaking the Spine! 

This week I'm waiting on something with a very unique premise. I read it and fell for it immediately. And then since it had to do with military, I was SOLD. I love anything that has to do with contemporary romance and military.Also, I LOVEEEE the cover. It looks so real and it fits perfectly with the story from what the synopsis says! So, without further ado, here's what I'm waiting on!!!

 Operation Oleander
When Jess's dad ships out to Afghanistan, she wants nothing more than to feel close to him once again. So, she rounds up her friends, Sam and Meriwether, to form the Order of the Oleander, a club that collects school supplies for Afghan orphans. But Jess's delight in the Order's success turns to horror as breaking news reveals that as the soldiers unloaded the latest shipment of supplies, a bomb went off near the orphanage, killing troops and civilians alike. Jess is relieved to discover her father was only injured, but dismayed to hear that Meriwether's mother was killed....and Meri believes it is Jess's fault.   Abandoned by her friends, shunned by the community, and commanded by the general to shut down the Order, Jess is suddenly thrust into political media firestorm with no backup but her father's emails. Valerie O. Patteron's literary prose is deeply evocative and emotional, conveying Jess' agony as she struggles to reconcile her affection for Afghan orphans with her love and loyalty to the American armed forces in this stunning contemporary drama.
