Waiting on Wednesday (21)

January 15, 2014 waiting on wednesday 9

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.

This Week:

Summer of Yesterday by Gaby Triana

Release Date: July 8,2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Summer officially sucks. Thanks to a stupid seizure she had a few months earlier, Haley’s stuck going on vacation with her dad and his new family to Disney’s Fort Wilderness instead of enjoying the last session of summer camp back home with her friends. Fort Wilderness holds lots of childhood memories for her father, but surely nothing for Haley. But then a new seizure triggers something she’s never before experienced—time travel—and she ends up in River Country, the campground’s long-abandoned water park, during its heyday.

The year? 1982.

And there—with its amusing fashion, “oldies” music, and primitive technology—she runs into familiar faces: teenage Dad and Mom before they’d even met. Somehow, Haley must find her way back to the twenty-first century before her present-day parents anguish over her disappearance, a difficult feat now that she’s met Jason, one of the park’s summer residents and employees, who takes the strangely dressed stowaway under his wing.

Seizures aside, Haley’s used to controlling her life, and she has no idea how to deal with this dilemma. How can she be falling for a boy whose future she can’t share?

Why I’m Waiting

I am a huge Disney World person. I go at least once a year and I’ve actually stayed in Fort Wilderness a couple of times. It’s so neat to see that the story is set there because I can completely related. This sounds like it is going to be a wonderful time travel book and I’m curious to see how much Disney World has changed since 1982. And if Haley falls for a boy, will she want to come back to the present? I’m really excited about this book!

What are you waiting on this week?

    I am SO TBR-ing this. Thank you so much for showing this because now I’m flailing all around. Disney and boys and past and hints of Back to the Future. I’m all over this.
