Waiting on Wednesday: Saint Anything

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers share upcoming releases they're eagerly anticipating. 

My pick this week is:
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Expected Publication Date: May 5th, 2015

Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?

Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.

The uber-popular Sarah Dessen explores her signature themes of family, self-discovery, and change in her twelfth novel, sure to delight her legions of fans. 

I adore Sarah Dessen. When I heard she was publishing a brand new book in 2015, I actually squealed. I cannot wait to read this. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? 


  1. I've had bad luck with the Sarah Dessen books I've read so far, but for some reason I have a really good feeling about this one. Can't wait for it to come out!

    1. Aw, sorry you haven't been able to get into Sarah Dessen! I hope you have better luck with Saint Anything!
