Waiting On Wednesday 11

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that highlights an upcoming book release that we are eagerly anticipating.


This week I have chosen Don't Stop Now by Julie Halpern. It's released on the 7th June 2011.

On the first day of Lillian’s summer-before-college, she gets a message on her cell from her sort-of friend, Penny. Not only has Penny faked her own kidnapping, but Lil is the only one who figures it out. She knows that Penny’s home life has been rough, and that her boyfriend may be abusive. Soon, Penny’s family, the local police, and even the FBI are grilling Lil, and she decides to head out to Oregon, where Penny has mentioned an acquaintance. And who better to road-trip across the country with than Lil’s BFF, Josh. But here’s the thing: Lil loves Josh. And Josh doesn’t want to “ruin” their amazing friendship.

Josh has a car and his dad’s credit card. Lil has her cellphone and a hunch about where Penny is hiding. There’s something else she needs to find: Are she and Josh meant to be together?



Road-trip!!! I love road-trip books and this one sounds seriously awesome. I love the folded map on the cover it makes a refreshing change to have something on the cover other than a girl in a pretty dress - not that those cover aren't beautiful.


That's all for now.

  1. Ooh this sounds great! A nice, refreshing change of pace from all the paranormal and dystopian novels. I absolutely love those, but it's good to have something different to slip in between. Great pick, I'm looking forward to reading this!

  2. This one has a lot going on, but I really like the road trip idea and the fact the Lil and Josh are friends but Lil wants more. Good tension for a long drive. Great pick!

  24. I like the girl in a pretty dress looking sad on the covers of most YA novels but I think the proliferation of them on the market is indicative of a certain lack of creativity. Honestly. Think of something new. But then again, I am totally a sucker for those covers. Not all of them but some of them. I was so bummed about the Nightshade sequel cover being changed.

  31. I like the cover too! Road-trip books are almost always fun. Have you read An Abundence of Katherines by John Green? I think that's probably my favorite road-trip book.
