Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales (Farrar, Straus & Giroux BYR):
Tonight the Streets Are Ours tells the story of 17-year-old Arden Huntley, a teen girl living in the suburbs, who becomes obsessed with a blogger in New York City named Peter. Arden finds so much comfort and understanding in Peter’s words that she sets out on a road trip to NYC to track him down in real life. What comes next is parties, dancing, and music, and some revelations that show maybe Peter and Arden both aren’t who the other thought they were.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I have heard amazing things about This Song Will Save Your Life – which I still need to read but hope to get to soon – that when this one crossed my radar I was immediately intrigued. I’m not the biggest road trip book fan, but I love the idea of Arden’s motivation being a blogger. While I by no means condone stalking or tracking down bloggers in real life, I think a book about the subject could be interesting. I also like that the book will apparently be told in dual point of views – Arden’s, and Peter’s blog entries. Plus you can’t tell me that the cover doesn’t pull you in! Talk about a great use of typography!
Release Date: September 15, 2015
