Waiting on Wednesday [14]


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Today's WoW spotlights Anne Osterlund's Salvation:


Title: Salvation
Author: Anne Osterlund
Release Date: January 10, 2013
Published By: Penguin
Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him.

Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.

Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.

Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?
I've always been a sucker for novels wherein two people who couldn't be more different fall in love, and Salvation seemingly fits that mold. Also, I have an inkling that this will be a heartwrenching read, and I'm a huge fan of those as well...
