Waiting on Wednesday (50)

Hi and Happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to show books we can't wait to read!

This week's pick is:
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
June 14, 2012

"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time." 

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen year old Samantha wishes she was one of them… until the day Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. 

Jase can sense that his beautiful neighbor is missing something in her sterile home, and as the two fall fiercely in love, his family makes her one of their own. 

But when the bottom drops out of Sam's world, which perfect family will save her–and will her perfect love survive? 

Set among the haves and have-nots of a coastal New England town, My LIFE NEXT DOOR captures the angst, the heartache, and the raw-nerve emotions of first time love—and biting loss.


I'm always in the mood for a good contemporary read, and My Life Next Door looks like it could ease my craving a little. Plus, who doesn't like romance that involves the next door neighbor boys? But other than that, the setting of New England and the biting loss described in the summary make this sound like a really good read!
