Waiting On Wednesday #8
The COMPLETELY fantastic book I'm waiting for this week is Chain Reaction, by Simone Elkeles!:D (AHHHHHHHH!!!!)
First it was Alex, than it was Carlos and now finally it's Luis's turn! I love Elkeles's writing, my favorite part is that she actually uses Spanish in the story, it makes the story more "authentic". I'm very excited for August 16! Can you tell!?!?!:D
"Luis Fuentes is a good boy who doesn't live with the angst that his big brothers, Alex and Carlos, have always lived with. Luis is smart, funny, and has big dreams of becoming an astronaut. But when he falls for the wrong girl, Luis enters a dark world he's never known, and just when he thinks he's got life all figured out, learns some disturbing news about his family that destroys his positive outlook on life. Will that Fuentes bad boy streak come out with a vengeance and lure Luis to live on the edge like his new girlfriend and his own father?"
-Thank you Barnes and Noble.
Yaaay, yaaay, yaaaay! (*does a happy dance!*)
