Waiting on Wednesday: Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) by Miranda Kenneally

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) by Miranda Kenneally

From Goodreads:
Taylor’s always felt pressure to be perfect. That’s what happens when you are a senator’s daughter. So when she’s kicked out of private school for covering for her boyfriend’s not-so-legal behavior, she is devastated.

Things go from bad to worse as she joins what used to be her rival soccer team at Hundred Oaks High. The only person who seems to understand all that she’s going through is her older brother’s best friend, Ezra. But Ezra has secrets of his own. Will Taylor repeat past mistakes, or can she score a fresh start? 
I love love love this series and I can't wait for this book, in particular, since I played soccer for 15 years!  Defending Taylor is scheduled for release on July 1, 2016, and I can't wait!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??

  7. I've only read one book by Kenneally (not realizing it was part of a series). I picked up Breathe, Annie, Breathe last year and it was so much more than I was expecting. I really loved it. Sounds like this one is right up your alley with the soccer aspect!

    Thank you for sharing and for stopping by my post earlier. Happy reading!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for.

As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
