Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Vow by Jessica Martinez
Expected Release Date: October 15, 2013
No one has ever believed that Mo and Annie are just friends. How can a guy and a girl really be best friends?
Then the summer before senior year, Mo’s father loses his job, and by extension his work visa. Instantly, life for Annie and Mo crumbles. Although Mo has lived in America for most of his life, he’ll be forced to move to Jordan. The prospect of leaving his home is devastating, and returning to a world where he no longer belongs terrifies him.
Desperate to save him, Annie proposes they tell a colossal lie—that they are in love. Mo agrees because marrying Annie is the only way he can stay. Annie just wants to keep her best friend, but what happens when it becomes a choice between saving Mo and her own chance at real love?

I feel like I already had a WoW post about this book, but a quick search of my archives turned up nothing. That being said, I think it looks great. I can’t wait to read this one. The premise feels fresh, and if it’s done well, it’ll be really interesting and pertinent to today’s world. I don’t know. I’m not feeling particularly articulate today, but I do know I want to read this one.
What are you waiting on this week?
