Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW feature is:

Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Expected publication: January 15, 2013

Three months before Rebecca Muir is set to begin college, her father reveals a secret that tears the family apart: he is leaving them.

In an instant, Rebecca’s life crumbles—she has to rely on her mother now, when her whole life she’s been her father’s girl; she’s not sure she can trust her high school boyfriend; and her carefully planned-out life suddenly feels all wrong.

Reb’s journey takes her across the country and back, and is for anyone who has experienced uncertainty or betrayal. This book will inspire readers to overcome life’s challenges and come out triumphant on the other side. (Goodreads)

YA contemporary? Sign me up! No really, this book sounds good, and it’s from the author of North of Beautiful… which I’ve only heard amazing things about – the book and its author. It’s on my TBR list!

What book are you anxiously waiting for this week?
