Happy Wednesday, guys!
This week, our WoW pick is Far From Fair by Elana K. Arnold. She showed me a postcard of the cover at Annual, and I've been dying to read it ever since!
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read!
Hardcover, 240 pages
Expected publication: March 8th 2016 by HMH Books for Young Readers
At the top of the list is her parents’ decision to take the family on the road in an ugly RV they’ve nicknamed the Coach. There’s nothing fair about leaving California and living in the Coach with her parents and exasperating brother. And there’s definitely nothing fair about Grandma Sissy’s failing health, and the painful realities and difficult decisions that come with it. Most days it seems as if everything in Odette’s life is far from fair but does it have to be?
With warmth and sensitivity Elana Arnold makes difficult topics like terminal illness and the right to die accessible to young readers and able to be discussed.
Why I'm waiting:
Not only is the cover gorgeous, but I love stories that involve road trips where people end up finding themselves in unique and different ways.
