Waiting on Wednesday: Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that showcases our most wanted upcoming releases.
 
 
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Release Date: May 7th, 2013
 
For Cricket Thompson, a summer like this one will change everything. A summer spent on Nantucket with her best friend, Jules Clayton, and the indomitable Clayton family. A summer when she’ll make the almost unattainable Jay Logan hers. A summer to surpass all dreams.

Some of this turns out to be true. Some of it doesn’t.

When Jules and her family suffer a devastating tragedy that forces the girls apart, Jules becomes a stranger whom Cricket wonders whether she ever really knew. And instead of lying on the beach working on her caramel-colored tan, Cricket is making beds and cleaning bathrooms to support herself in paradise for the summer.

But it’s the things Cricket hadn’t counted on--most of all, falling hard for someone who should be completely off-limits--that turn her dreams into an exhilarating, bittersweet reality.

A beautiful future is within her grasp, and Cricket must find the grace to embrace it. If she does, her life could be the perfect shade of Nantucket blue.
 
 
Estranged best friends, a summer spent working at the beach, and cute boys that are off limits, what more could a girl ask for in a contemporary? I think my second favorite type of contemp, coming in just behind road trip novels, are ones that have summer romance. Now give me a contemp that's a summer romance road trip and I am in heaven, but I am getting off track here. I love that this is a summer story, but it sounds like it also has some drama and deeper stuff going on, and I am excited to see what the story turns out to be. Definitely sounds like one I'll be adding to my favorites shelf :0)
 
What are you guys waiting on this week?
