Waiting on Wednesday #37

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

The Summer I Saved the World . . . in 65 Days

It’s the summer before freshman year in high school and Nina decides to follow what someone said at her middle-school graduation: “Be unnoticed, but be remarkable.” Her best friend Jorie is focusing on boys, clothes, and popularity, her lawyer parents are diving into a new case, and this is the first summer without her beloved Grandma, so she’s is feeling a little lost. She hatches a plan: every day, all summer, she’ll do one anonymous kind thing for someone at home or in her neighborhood. Her goal? To bring her family and her beloved community together again.

I adore the concept of random acts of kindness, and The Summer I Saved the World… in 65 Days looks like a really cute contemporary.   

Due to be released by Wendy Lamb Books in April 2014.
