Waiting on Wednesday (27)

Hi! Happy Wednesday!WoW is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

This week's pick is:
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
May 8, 2012

Taylor's family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then they get news that changes everything: Her father has pancreatic cancer, and it's stage four – meaning that there is basically nothing to be done. Her parents decide that the family will spend his last months together at their old summerhouse in the Pocono Mountains.

Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven't actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is suddenly around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.

As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they've ever been before. But all of them very aware that they're battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love.

I LOVE Morgan Matson. Granted, she's only written one book. But that was enough to make me more that a fan. I LOVED Amy and Roger's Epic Detour. And I have a feeling this one will be just as good. Second Chance Summer sounds heartbreaking but at the same time just amazing. I can't wait!
