Waiting On Wednesday! (3)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on...hosted by: Jill at Breaking the Spine

I usually go for paranormal and dystopian YA but this week I found a book that catches my eye for contemporary.

In Honor
by Jessi Kirby
Publication Date: May 8, 2012

From Barnes & Noble:

A devastating loss leads to an unexpected road trip in this novel from the author of Moonglass, whose voice Sarah Dessen says “is fresh and wise, all at once.”
Hours after her brother’s military funeral, Honor opens the last letter Finn ever sent. In her grief, she interprets his note as a final request and spontaneously decides to go to California to fulfill it.
Honor gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn’s best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn’t seen Rusty in ages, but it’s obvious he is as arrogant and stubborn as ever—not to mention drop-dead gorgeous. Despite Honor’s better judgment, the two set off together on a voyage from Texas to California. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn’s memory—but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?


  1. I loved Moonglass so I am excited about this one too!

    Reading Lark's WOW

  2. I've never read this author but I'd have to say that if Sarah Dessen likes her, it probably will be a really good read! And a tear jerker it sounds like too.

    Here's my WOW.
