Waiting on Wednesday: Twenty Boy Summer


This week's WOW book is...Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. It will be released on June 1, 2009.

Description from Amazon: “What is the statute of limitations on feeling guilty for cheating on a ghost?” Anna writes in her journal, or rather, writes to Matt, her first true love and her best friend Frankie’s brother. More than a year has passed since Matt’s sudden death, and all that time Anna has kept her brief relationship with Matt a secret from Frankie. Matt had planned to tell his sister but died before he had the opportunity. Now, while on a beach vacation with Frankie’s family, Anna finds herself falling for cute, sensitive Sam against her will—if she can love someone else, does that mean she no longer loves Matt? Anna approaches this issue and other big questions with the insight and maturity that come when a young person loses someone he or she cares deeply about. Anna’s authentic voice and some lyrical writing will satisfy fans of Sarah Dessen, while the mix of romance, drama, and tragedy will be a draw for teen readers of Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult. Grades 9-11.

I've read awesome reviews about this book. I'm actually not sure if it's already come out yet, because I think I saw it on the shelf at Borders...but I could be wrong :) Either way, I think this looks like a great summer read!
