Waiting on Wednesday: Second Chance Summer (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.


I cannot wait for...
 Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson!
Publication Date: May 8, 2012

Taylor's family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then they get news that changes everything: Her father has pancreatic cancer, and it's stage four – meaning that there is basically nothing to be done. Her parents decide that the family will spend his last months together at their old summerhouse in the Pocono Mountains. 
Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven't actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is suddenly around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they've ever been before. But all of them very aware that they're battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love.

Morgan's first novel, Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, is one of my favorites! She's a wonderful author and I cannot wait until her next book, Second Chance Summer, comes out.

What's your book that you're waiting on?
