One summer chasing tornadoes could finally change Jane's life for the better.
Seventeen-year-old Jane McAllister can't quite admit her mother's alcoholism is spiraling dangerously out of control until she drives drunk, nearly killing them and Jane's best friend.
Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left the problems at home years ago for college. A summer with him and his tornado-chasing buddies may just provide the time and space Jane needs to figure out her life and whether it still includes her mother. But she struggles with her anger at Ethan for leaving home and feels guilty--is she also abandoning her mom just when she needs Jane most? The carefree trip turned journey of self-discovery quickly becomes more than Jane bargained for, especially when the devilishly handsome Max steps into the picture.(Goodreads)
Can I just start this review with some cover love?!?! Ok, lets take a moment and look again… It is so stunning! It’s even better in person. All right on to the real review.
OK, so after trying like eight times to write this review I finally gave up and did a gushy vlog review to get what I was trying to say across. If you are not one that likes to watch reviews, let me just say I loved The Waiting Sky! It is an awesome YA contemporary that deals with real issues and really gets it. The Waiting Sky has awesome memorable characters that I fell in love with. And I already want to read it again.
Loved it! I want to know about everything this author writes.
Happy Reading and watching,
