Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that highlights eagerly anticipated books.

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Release Date: June 14, 2012
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers

"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen year old Samantha wishes she was one of them… until the day Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything.

Jase can sense that his beautiful neighbor is missing something in her sterile home, and as the two fall fiercely in love, his family makes her one of their own.

But when the bottom drops out of Sam's world, which perfect family will save her–and will her perfect love survive?
Description from Goodreads.

Why I can't wait?
I'm fascinated by stories that look across the tracks into other peoples lives. In My Life Next Door, two characters with vastly different lives and families don't just glimpse each others lives, they intersect. They fall in love. I'm drawn to stories like these and I hope this one knocks my socks off!


  1. This one sounds super good! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. This sounds like something I would ADORE *adds to wish list*. I love boy/girl next door stories so fierce *happy sigh*

  3. I'm totally looking forward to this one - I've seen a couple of people use it for 'Waiting on' Wednesday recently. That cover art is just AWESOME, isn't it? Great pick!

    If you’d like, you can check out my WoW here.

  4. I can't wait for this book either! Great pick!
