WoW [9]

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW feature is:

The Whole Stupid Way We Are by N. Griffin
Expected publication: February 5, 2013
Publisher: Atheneum Books for Young Readers

[Goodreads]
It’s Maine. It’s winter. And it’s FREEZING STINKIN’ COLD! Dinah is wildly worried about her best friend, Skint. He won’t wear a coat. Refuses to wear a coat. It’s twelve degrees out, and he won’t wear a coat. So Dinah’s going to figure out how to help. That’s what Dinah does—she helps. But she’s too busy trying to help to notice that sometimes, she’s doing more harm than good. Seeing the trees instead of the forest? That’s Dinah.

And Skint isn’t going to be the one to tell her. He’s got his own problems. He’s worried about a little boy whose dad won’t let him visit his mom. He’s worried about an elderly couple in a too-cold house down the street.

But the wedge between what drives Dinah and what concerns Skint is wide enough for a big old slab of ice. Because Skint’s own father is in trouble. Because Skint’s mother refuses to ask for help even though she’s at her breaking point. And because Dinah might just decide to…help. She thinks she’s cracking through a sheet of ice, but what’s actually there is an entire iceberg.


I've heard some good things about this book. I'm really interested in seeing what it's all about. Looks good and I love a good story. Definitely seems like there's more than meets the eye.

Please feel free to share your WoW.

  3. This sounds SO good. There's another book I've read that has a similar premise that I cannot, for the life of me, remember the name of, but this sounds like it, and it was ridiculously good. So yeah, I'm excited. Thank you for sharing!

    BTW, how is All I Want? Just curious.

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW!
