Me on Waiting on Wednesday (58)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Waiting Sky
Author: Lara Zielin
Release Date: August 2, 2012
Publisher: Putman Juvenille (Penguin imprint)

From Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Jane can’t quite face her mother’s alcoholism even though it sucks to spend all her time and energy keeping them afloat—making sure her mom gets to work, that the bills are paid when there’s money to pay them, and that no one knows her mom is so messed up. But when Jane’s mom drives drunk almost killing both them and Jane’s best friend, Jane can no longer deny her mom is spiraling out of control. Jane has only one place to turn: her older brother Ethan, who left years ago to go to college. A summer away with him and his tornado chasing buddies may just provide the time and space she needs to figure out whether her life still includes her mother.

This sounds like one of those contemporary YA novels that intrigue me for some bizarre reason. It sounds interesting, the cover looks bright and sharp and striking. Most of the reason I want this book is because of the cover. Gorgeous. If you have this, read it, then don't know what to do with it, feel free to offer it to me. :)
