Waiting on Wednesday: Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming December 27, 2011!


Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

My wish
is to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy
love.

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father.

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? can you even know it until you've lost it?

Love and Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.


This sounds like a cute and fun read, a la Sarah Dessen or Stephanie Perkins. I need more contemporary in my reading diet, and who doesn't love a good ol' fashioned love story? Honestly, this synopsis had me with the opening poem. If that bright, snappy style is indicative of the rest of the book, I am all in.

What are you waiting on this week?
