Waiting on Wednesday (26)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Summary from goodreads!


Flyaway by Helen Landalf
December 19, 2011

Fifteen-year-old Stevie Calhoun is used to taking care of herself. But one night, her mom, who works as an exotic dancer in a downtown Seattle nightclub, never comes home.

That’s the night Stevie’s life turns upside down.

It’s the night that kicks off an extraordinary summer: the summer Stevie has to stay with her annoyingly perfect Aunt Mindy; the summer she learns to care for injured and abandoned birds; the summer she gets to know Alan, the meanest guy in high school.

But most of all, it’s the summer she finds out the truth about Mom.

FLYAWAY is the story of a teen girl’s struggle to hold on to what she’s always believed, even as her world spins out of control.

This sounds like it could be a really good contemporary novel, which I'm always looking for more of. And if my sources are correct it's also a 2011 debut!
