Waiting on Wednesday: In a Perfect World by Trish Doller

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

In a Perfect World

     Caroline Kelly is excited to be spending her summer vacation working at the local amusement park with her best friend, exploring weird Ohio with her boyfriend, and attending soccer camp with the hope she’ll be her team’s captain in the fall.
     But when Caroline’s mother is hired to open an eye clinic in Cairo, Egypt, Caroline’s plans are upended. Caroline is now expected to spend her summer and her senior year in a foreign country, away from her friends, her home, and everything she’s ever known.
     With this move, Caroline predicts she’ll spend her time navigating crowded streets, eating unfamiliar food, and having terrible bouts of homesickness. But what she finds instead is a culture that surprises her, a city that astounds her, and a charming, unpredictable boy who challenges everything she thought she knew about life, love, and privilege.
     From critically acclaimed author Trish Doller comes an honest, hopeful, and romantic story about the barriers we tear down for the people and places we love most.

Why I'm Waiting: I am a huge fan of Trish Doller. I have every ARC and every finished copy she's ever published. I haven't found many contemps that compare to her first novel, Something Like Normal, (I read that book like 8 times) but this one sure sounds like it'll give it a run for it's money. I love that we get to see Egypt and get to learn so much about a different culture. Plus, I can't lie this new boy sounds like a real winner too! Can't wait to meet him! 

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you be waiting on this with me?

  2. Something Like Normal WAS pretty awesome. I have enjoyed reading her other books as well. Hopefully we'll both like this one.
