WoW [71]

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

Driftwood by Elizabeth Dutton
Expected Publication: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing

How far would you go for your family? A smart and funny debut about road trips, music, love, and California for fans of The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Run River and Killing Yourself to Live.

Los Angeles, California: Clem Jasper is a trust fund kid with a world famous rock musician for a father. When he dies suddenly (playing ping pong) she discovers he’s left her a strange legacy—a series of letters that take her on a mysterious road trip around California. Ignoring her aunt’s suggestion that she pitch the trip as a reality show, she embarks on her own—to discover just what it was that her father meant her to find. What secret could be so powerful that he had to die before telling her?

Why I Can’t Wait…

  1. I like the sound of this one. I loved The Perks Of Being A Wallflower , knowing that it has sold me on this one :D


  2. I also really like the sound of this one. A personal road-trip with letters from your father to guide you. I'm wondering what's in store for Clem. Nice pick!

    My WoW pick :)

  3. Eh, not really my type of read, but I hope you get to read it soon. :)
