Waiting on Wednesday #16


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:
Pregnant Pause
by Han Nolan
Release Date: September 19th 2011
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Available for pre-order at:
B&N | Amazon | BAM | The Book Depository | Borders | HMH Books

Nobody gets away with telling Eleanor Crowe what to do. But as a pregnant sixteen-year-old, her options are limited: move to Kenya with her missionary parents or marry the baby’s father and work at his family’s summer camp for overweight kids.

Despite her initial reluctance to help out, Elly is surprised that she actually enjoys working with the campers. But a tragedy on the very day her baby is born starts a series of events that overwhelms Elly with unexpected emotions and difficult choices. Somehow, she must turn her usual obstinance in a direction that can ensure a future for herself—and for the new life she has created. -GoodReads

Why am I waiting on this book?

I recently had the pleasure of reading the e-Arc for this book, and I absolutely loved it. It was quite a touching story that has really stuck with me. It does deal with teen pregnancy, and I thought for sure I would hate it. But I didn't. I loved it. This book will be a welcome addition on my bookshelf!

So what are you WoWing for this week?? Leave me a comment with your link so I can check it out!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. What really strikes me about this book is the different tone it takes with the "teen pregnancy" issue. It's not all "When Elly finds out she's pregnant, she stresses on how to tell her uber-Conservative parents, her college-bound boyfriend and the ever-irritating Bugs Bunny." That alone piques my interest.
