What I’m waiting on
Alyssa B. Sheinmel
Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Release Date: May 13, 2014
A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary ocean side adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.
Why I HATE waiting
I saw this on so many Stacking the Shelves post this weekend. Ok y’all I am going to be completely honest. I’m not sure if I am going to be amazed by this or not… But, Second Star is a Peter Pan retelling!!! I have to try it! If you know anything about me at all you know I LOVE fairy tell retelling. I really want to read this and see if it is worth the hype.P.S. I really like this cover:)
Is Second Star on your to read list?
