Waiting on Wednesday #15 : Joyride

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Joyride by Anna Banks

Publication Date: June 2, 2015
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Why Am I Excited For This Book?
I love Anna Banks' writing style. So of course I am super excited for her new book! This book sounds great! Opposites meeting and discovering they have more in common than they thought. "Funny, romantic and sometimes harsh" definitely sounds like a contemporary read that I will enjoy. I am looking forward to find out what will happen when Carly and Arden cross paths. And how that will change the way they live their lives. Plus, I am sure this story will give me all the feels! 

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?
