Waiting on Wednesday: Gem & Dixie

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.  This week, my pick is:

Gem & Dixie by Sara Zarr
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Date: April 4, 2017

"Gem has never known what it is to have security. She’s never known an adult she can truly rely on. But the one constant in her life has been Dixie. Gem grew up taking care of her sister when no one else could: not their mother, whose issues make it hard for her to keep food on the table; and definitely not their father, whose intermittent presence is the only thing worse than his frequent absence. Even as Gem and Dixie have grown apart, they’ve always had each other.

When their dad returns for the first time in years and tries to insert himself back into their lives, Gem finds herself with an unexpected opportunity: three days with Dixie, on their own in Seattle and beyond. But this short trip soon becomes something more, as Gem discovers that to save herself, she may have to sever the one bond she's tried so hard to keep."- From Goodreads

I really liked Sara Zarr's Roomies written with Tara Altebrando, and I can't wait to read this one either!

  2. Oh man, I'm pretty sure I have an ARC of this book, languishing in a box somewhere. It was unsolicited and I'm not into YA contemporary. So many books, so little time! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Cassie. =)
