Waiting on Wednesday (14)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we "can't-wait-to-read".

Fixing Delilah Hannaford by Sarah Ockler
Release date: November 2nd 2010
Summary: (taken from Goodreads)

Things in Delilah Hannaford’s life have a tendency to fall apart. She used to be a good student, but she can’t seem to keep it together anymore. Her friends are drifting away. Her “boyfriend” isn’t a boyfriend. Her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided the Hannaford family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, runs in the family.

When Delilah must spend the summer helping to settle her estranged grandmother’s estate, she’s suddenly confronted by her family’s painful past. Faced with questions that cannot be ignored and secrets that threaten to burst free, Delilah begins to doubt all that she’s ever known to be true.


Rich with humor and emotion, Sarah Ockler delivers a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery—as Delilah comes to question whether even the most shattered relationships can be pieced back together again.


I fell in love with Sarah Ockler's first novel-Twenty Boy Summer (click for my review). It definitely became one of my favorites. This one sounds amazing, I have very high hopes. Oh and I read an excerpt HERE that was awesome- feel free to check it out :) And unfortunately the cover is out yet, but I have a feeling it will be great too .

I already have Twenty Boy Summer on my wish list, but I didn't realize Ockler had another book coming out. This sounds interesting, will add it to the TBR pile, too.
