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