Mom - Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.

I have a confession…this week’s book choice is purely cover love!!! Isn’t it gorgeous?! I’m not a big fan of young adult contemporary, but this book’s cover has me sold ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then I read the synopsis toย The Night We Said Yesย and I was like:

First off I love alternating chapters whether it’s POV or then and now as this book will be. Secondly second chance stories are just awesome! And again LOOK AT THAT COVER!!! This book has a lot of promise and I can’t wait to dive in ๐Ÿ˜€

A fun, romantic read, perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Susane Colasanti!

Before Matt, Ella had a plan. Get over a no-good ex-boyfriend. Graduate from high school without any more distractions. Move away from Orlando, Florida, where sheโ€™s lived her entire life.

But Mattโ€”the cute, shy, bespectacled bass player who just moved to townโ€”was never part of that plan.

And neither was attending a party that was crashed by the cops just minutes after they arrived. Or spending an entire night saying โ€œyesโ€ to every crazy, fun thing they could think of.

Then Matt abruptly left town, and he broke not only Ellaโ€™s heart but those of their best friends, too. So when he shows up a year later with a plan of his ownโ€”to relive the night that brought them togetherโ€”Ella isnโ€™t sure whether Mattโ€™s worth a second chance. Or if re-creating the past can help them create a different future.

In alternating then and now chapters, debut author Lauren Gibaldi crafts a charming, romantic story of first loves, lifelong friendships, uncovered secrets, and, ultimately, finding out how to be brave.
