Waiting on Wednesday (July 11)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin

One summer chasing tornadoes could finally change Jane's life for the betterSeventeen-year-old Jane McAllister can't quite admit her mother's alcoholism is spiraling dangerously out of control until she drives drunk, nearly killing them and Jane's best friend.

Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left the problems at home years ago for college. A summer with him and his tornado-chasing buddies may just provide the time and space Jane needs to figure out her life and whether it still includes her mother. But she struggles with her anger at Ethan for leaving home and feels guilty--is she also abandoning her mom just when she needs Jane most? The carefree trip turned journey of self-discovery quickly becomes more than Jane bargained for, especially when the devilishly handsome Max steps into the picture. (From Goodreads)

This one does sound good, although I live in Oklahoma and I don't have a fondness for tornadoes, so I'm kind of torn. ;) But I do know some tornado chasers! Great pick, and thanks so much for stopping by my WoW this week. (And I'm sorry I'm just now responding!) Have a great weekend!
