Waiting On Wednesday (33) - The Waiting Sky

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're pining after.

Title: The Waiting Sky
Author: Lara Zielin
Published: 2nd Aug 2012
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile

Seventeen-year-old Jane can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to work, that the bills are paid when there’s money to pay them, and that no one knows her mom is so messed up. But when Jane’s mom drives drunk almost killing both them and Jane’s best friend, Jane can no longer deny her mom is spiraling out of control. Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left years ago to go to college. A summer away with him and his tornado chasing buddies may just provide the time and space she needs to figure out whether her life still includes her mother. - From Goodreads

This sounds great, a little bit of heartbreak, and some action thrown in there too. Also can we sing out for how amazing the cover looks, I just love that tornado in a jar. I can't wait to see how this story plays out.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Let me know in the comments.
