Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
 
 
Love, Lucy

description:
While backpacking through Florence, Italy, during the summer before she heads off to college, 17-year-old Lucy Sommersworth finds herself falling in love with the culture, the architecture, the food...and Jesse Palladino, a handsome street musician. After a whirlwind romance, Lucy returns home, determined to move on from her "vacation flirtation." But just because summer is over doesn't mean Lucy and Jesse are over, too.

Inspired by E.M. Forster's A Room with a View.
 
My thoughts:  Now, I never did get to read April Lindner's Catherine, but I absolutely ADORED Jane, her take on Jane Eyre.  This author has got a real knack for brilliant retellings of classic literature. So I'm excited for more.   And the cover...perfection.
