Me on Waiting on Wednesday (272)

Author: Siobhan Vivian
Release Date: April 26, 2016
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

From Goodreads:

What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?

While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together.

And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever.

There’s a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there’s nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn’t. Or say things you shouldn’t. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.


It’s the end of Aberdeen, but the beginning of Keeley’s first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it’s not always clear what’s worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory.

I'm intrigued by this, by the plot of this book. Teens left to their own devices in a ruined town, left to do what they've wanted to, what they weren't able to do. Knowing they've got nothing to lose. It sounds interesting. :)

  2. I agree, this sounds really good. I don't read a ton of YA contemps but this one I might. Love the idea of them canoeing down Main Street. :)

  3. This does sound really good. I hope you enjoy reading it.
