Waiting on Wednesday (#40)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release we are greatly anticipating.

While He Was Away
Karen Schreck
May 1st 2012


"This is just something I have to do, okay?" I hear David say. "The right thing."
He cradles my face in his hands. He kisses me hard. Then he lets go of me. His eyes dart from me to whatever's next.
When Penna Weaver's boyfriend goes off to Iraq, she's left facing life without him. As summer sets in, Penna tries to distract herself with work and her art, but the not knowing is slowly driving her crazy. Especially when David stops writing. She knows in her heart he will come home- but will he be the same boy she fell in love with?

How to Ruin a Summer Vacation by Simone Elkeles


Moshav? What’s a moshav? Is it “shopping mall” in Hebrew? I mean, from what Jessica was telling me, Israeli stores have the latest fashions from Europe. That black dress Jessica has is really awesome. I know I’d be selling out if I go with the Sperm Donor to a mall, but I keep thinking about all the great stuff I could bring back home.

Unfortunately for 16-year-old Amy Nelson, “moshav” is not Hebrew for “shopping mall.” Not even close. Think goats, not Gucci.

Going to Israel with her estranged Israeli father is the last thing Amy wants to do this summer. She’s got a serious grudge against her dad, a.k.a. “Sperm Donor,” for showing up so rarely in her life. Now he’s dragging her to a war zone to meet a family she’s never known, where she’ll probably be drafted into the army. At the very least, she’ll be stuck in a house with no AC and only one bathroom for seven people all summer—no best friend, no boyfriend, no shopping, no cell phone…

Goodbye pride—hello Israel.

Review:

5- Amazing!! I want to read it again!

Simone Elkeles has done it again! (even though this was written before the Perfect Chemistry series, but no matter) I feel in love all over again with Simone’s book after reading this! This book is faced paced, funny and romantic; I just couldn’t get enough of this book! Simone just has a way to push all the romantic buttons that creates a brilliant love story.

All the character were well rounded and enjoyable to read. Amy was so funny, at first she was a hint annoying but I grew to love her as the book went on. I loved what her character became as the book went on and how she grew because of the experience that she had.

The book was well written and creative to say the least. If you’re looking for a romantic, funny and a just an all round fun book to read give this book a try!

Plot 4/5
Character 4/5
Cover 4/5
Ending 4/5
