Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan, a new young adult contemporary romance about graduating high school and the summer after. I’m the first to admit that I usually don’t care for these kinds of books, BUT this one caught my eye. Not only does it have a beautiful cover, but the synopsis reminds me a bit of Nicholas Sparks (and you all know I can’t resist him!). So now I REALLY want to read this one. I’m curious and I have a feeling I’ll need tissues while reading. What do you think?The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan

Middie Daniels calls it the Leaving Season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.
This year Middie’s boyfriend Nate is the one leaving. Nate, who’s so perfect that she can barely believe it. Nate, who makes her better than she is on her own. Nate, who’s promised to come back once he’s finished his gap year volunteering in Central America. And when he does, it’ll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him.
But when a tragedy strikes, Middie’s whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is… except for Nate’s slacker best friend Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.
Cat Jordan’s heartbreaking story proves that no matter the season, no matter the obstacles, love can help you find yourself in the most unexpected of places.
What are you not-so-patiently waiting on this Wednesday?
