This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Genre: Contemporary, Young Adult
Publication Date: 08.02.2012
Seventeen-year-old Jane can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to work, that the bills are paid when there’s money to pay them, and that no one knows her mom is so messed up. But when Jane’s mom drives drunk almost killing both them and Jane’s best friend, Jane can no longer deny her mom is spiraling out of control. Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left years ago to go to college. A summer away with him and his tornado chasing buddies may just provide the time and space she needs to figure out whether her life still includes her mother.

After seeing this book's cover, I knew before even reading the description, that I would be reading it. I know it doesn't come out for such a looooong time, but the cover has be completely hooked. I mean, a tornado trapped in a jar? The title: The Waiting Sky? I need nothing else. 

...but as it so happens, the description has gotten to me as well. I can't stay away from a good family drama, and the fact that Jane spends her summer chasing tornadoes (or so it would seem), is just too cool for me to pass up. I can't wait for this one!

What are you waiting on?
