Waiting On Wednesday (126)

This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!

Second Star
By Alyssa B Sheinmel
Release Date: May 13, 2014
Summary: 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.


Another retelling! Yay! And this one is about Peter Pan. I don't think I've ever read a retelling of Peter Pan, and a surfer Peter? I'm so excited to see how that turns out. Let's also not forget how amazing that cover is. I can't wait for this one to come out! Why is May so far away??
