For What It's Worth

WoW Pick

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

I haven't done one of these in a long time and honestly I do not need even one more new book for the next three least! But so it goes with my book addiction. I see - I want.
And this week I want Love & Leftovers - a novel in verse by Sarah Tregay.

My wish 
is to fall 
cranium over Converse 
in dizzy, daydream-worthy 

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father. 

By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up. But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? can you even know it until you've lost it? 

Love and Leftovers is a beautifully written story of one girl’s journey navigating family, friends, and love, and a compelling and sexy read that teens will gobble up whole.

 Sounds super cute - love the cover! I just don't love that we have to wait until January 2012 to read it.

  1. Love the cover! I'd like to find some more books that are written in verse, going to have to check this one out.

  2. I loved that small verse before the blurb. So it's written verse? I haven't tried one of those books out yet, but I think I'll give this one a shot. It looks super cute :)

  3. loving the cover of a cover within a cover - not too sure I'd enjoy the verse format though.

  4. I love books written in verse and can't wait for this one to come out! February is too gash darned far though... That cover is adorable. :D

    My WoW:

  5. LMAO, Karen! I feel the same. I don't need any new books for the next five years but that doesn't stop me from craving more. It's an addiction, I tell you.

    Yes, I want this one. Sounds sweet. :)

  6. Great pick! I'm excited for this one and I love the cover :)

  7. I've been wanting to try a book in verse, so maybe this is as good a place to start as any. Nice pick!
