“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:
Goose by Dawn O’ Porter
Summary from Amazon UK
It’s a year and a half on from PAPER AEROPLANES, and Renée is now living idyllically with her Auntie Jo. They even have geese, and Renée likes to sit and watch them, wondering if she’ll ever find ‘the One’ – someone who will love her no matter what, and be there for her no matter how bad things get. She and Flo are in their final year at school, and they’ve got some tough choices to make – like will they go to university? And if so where – and will they go together? Renée’s usual ambivalence on the matter shocks Flo, who had assumed they’d continue as they were, the best and closest of friends, forever. She feels as though she needs Renée’s support more than ever, so when a handsome young boy enters Flo’s life, she finds herself powerfully drawn to his kindness, and his faith. Renée and Flo’s friendship will soon be tested in a way neither of them could have expected – and if PAPER AEROPLANES was a book about finding friendship, GOOSE is the novel that explores whether it’s possible to keep hold of it.
Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Hot Key Books (3 April 2014)
Why this book?
Dawn O’ Porter’s debut Paper Aeroplanes was a real stand out read for me last year. I’m excited to see Renée and Flo again…their friendship is a very beautiful thing. The girls are very down-to-earth and relate-able – I’m sure their adventures this time round will be as heartbreaking and fun as the last!
