Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine in which we discuss our most anticipated upcoming releases.
Wanderlost by Jen Malone
Expected Publication: May 31st 2016 by HarperTeen
Number of Pages: 352 Pages (Hardcover)
Seventeen-year-old Aubree has always idolized her adventurous older sister, even while utterly content to track Elizabeth’s antics from the cozy comforts of home, in the tender care of doting parents. So when Elizabeth gets herself in "a touch of trouble” and, for the first time ever, actually needs Aubree's help, Bree is flattered but insistent.
There’s no way she can do what Elizabeth is asking. Impersonate her recent-college-grad sis all summer, just so Elizabeth can score the recommendation she needs to land her dream position? Nope, nope, not gonna happen.
ESPECIALLY when Elizabeth’s summer job is leading a bus tour.
A bus tour across Europe.
A senior citizens' bus tour across Europe.
And that's even before Bree finds out that the tour owner’s super-cute son (who is decidedly NOT elderly) will be a last-minute addition.
Bree would have to be crazy. Or would she? (goodreads.com)
This story sounds a little far fetched but the whole Europe and travel aspect has me intrigued. I love YA stories that play outside of the US or England, since those two are the most common ones. Besides that, as someone who's traveled across Europe herself, I'm curious to see how well that aspect is executed.
