WoW: The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord

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!

The Names They Gave Us

     From acclaimed author Emery Lord comes a vibrant, compelling story of love, loss, faith, and friendship.
     Lucy Hansson was ready for a perfect summer with her boyfriend, working at her childhood Bible camp on the lake. But when her mom’s cancer reappears, Lucy falters—in faith, in love, and in her ability to cope. When her boyfriend “pauses” their relationship and her summer job switches to a different camp—one for troubled kids—Lucy isn’t sure how much more she can handle. Attempting to accept a new normal, Lucy slowly regains footing among her vibrant, diverse coworkers, Sundays with her mom, and a crush on a fellow counselor. But when long-hidden family secrets emerge, can Lucy set aside her problems and discover what grace really means?
     Emotionally-charged and unforgettable, Emery Lord’s storytelling shines with the promise of new love and true friendship, even in the face of life’s biggest challenges.

Why I'm Waiting: Besides the fact that I would read Emery Lord's to-do list, I have to say, this synopsis sounds rather intriguing. It really has a unique twist and I've heard its full of emotions and is a page turner. I can't wait to get my hands on it! 

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