Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m eagerly waiting on ~ The Distance from A to Z
This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.
Seventeen-year old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French—well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs-obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.
That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to exclusively wear baseball caps and jerseys.
But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can’t help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between the distance between who she is and who he is, is worth the risk.
Expected Publication Date: January 12, 2016
Why am I waiting?
I especially enjoy the stories where the girl sets out with goals that the guy doesn’t meet, and ultimately realizes that her goals need to be thrown out. It’s probably because it fits with my own story. It’s sort of a trash to treasure situation. What you didn’t think could be worthy turns out better than all the rest.
What are you waiting on this week?
