WOW #42




I'm waiting on

 How My Summer Went Up in Flames

How My Summer Went Up In Flames 
by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
Expected Release Date May 7th 2013


Rosie’s always been impulsive. She didn’t intend to set her cheating ex-boyfriend’s car on fire. And she never thought her attempts to make amends could be considered stalking. So when she’s served with a temporary restraining order on the first day of summer vacation, she’s heartbroken—and furious.

To put distance between Rosie and her ex, Rosie’s parents send her on a cross-country road trip with responsible, reliable neighbor Matty and his two friends. Forget freedom of the road, Rosie just wants to hitchhike home and win back her ex. But with every mile marker that passes, Rosie discovers a new sense of self…and that sometimes the best revenge is moving on.

Why I'm Waiting?
So I may or may not have done some damage to some ex-boyfriend's cars in the past. LOL A cheating boyfriend! Restraining order! Road trip with hot guys! I wish my parents sent me on a road trip with a bunch of hot guys as a punishment! Sounds like a fun summer read!

  52. I saw this on a WoW post last week and RAN to add it to my TBR. I've never damaged an ex's car or belongings, but oh, I've wanted to. :) And where can I get parents that think a road trip with hot boys is PUNISHMENT?!? I could have used that back in the day...especially when I wrecked my car on my first ever road trip and my parents found out I was NOT going camping with just my bestie like I told them but instead picked up a couple of guys and headed to New Orleans for St. Patty's Day. Yeah. Road trip w/ hot boys was NOT the punishment for that little screw-up. Ah, memories.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my, I love your pick this week, Jennifer! It sounds absolutely amazing! The heroine sounds great, and it sounds like an emotional rollercoaster make-you-laugh-and-cry kind of book. I can't wait to read it!
