Waiting on Wednesday (103)

Posted by

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


My pick this week:

Waiting on Wednesday (103)

Second Star
Alyssa B. Sheinmel, Julie Anne Peters
Genre: Retellings, YA
Publication date: May 13th 2014
by Farrar Straus and Giroux (BYR)

A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside 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.

A Peter Pan love story! Dude! :D That was only one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid. I had the VHS (Lolz) and I used to watch it over and over until I’m pretty sure the tape physically broke!

What are you waiting on, this week?
