Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases.
Another of Those Contemporaries I Want To Read this year, Summer on the Short Bus is Bethany Crandell’s debut novel. I for one love reading camp books, it’s some weird leftover from my love affair with a particular middle grade camp novel when I was nine. This book certainly seems promising! Also can we talk about how adorable this cover is?
Spoiled, Versace-clad Cricket Montgomery has seventeen years of pampering under her belt. So when her father decides to ship her off to a summer camp for disabled teens to help her learn some accountability, Cricket resigns herself to three weeks of handicapped hell.
Her sentence takes a bearable turn as she discovers the humor and likeability of the campers and grows close to fellow counselors. Now, if she can just convince a certain Zac Efron look-alike with amazing blue eyes that she finally realizes there’s life after Gucci, this summer could turn out to be the best she’s ever had.
Summer on the Short Bus is a very non-P.C., contemporary YA with a lot of attitude, tons of laughs, and a little life lesson along the way.
Summer on the Short Bus releases on April 1st, 2014.
