Waiting on Wednesday [1]

Along for the Ride

by Sarah Dessen

It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.
A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.
In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.

Honestly though - who doesn't want this book? Now I will say that Sarah Dessen is my favorite author and this book...just fits me perfectly.

It's funny how that has happened with her last books. With Lock and Key I was transitioning, and moving (away from my mom as a matter of fact) as I read it, and now...I have officially been diagnosed with Insomnia due to stress from my parents divorce.

Amazing huh? When I read the description I freaked out. I just love it when I can relate :]
But anyway. It just looks so good, and this may be my favorite of her covers - which is saying something because they're all cute!

Here's hoping I can make it till June!
