Waiting on Wednesday (55)

The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin (August 2nd, 2012--Putnam)
Seventeen-year-old Jane McAllister, fleeing a troubled relationship with her alcoholic mom, spends a summer in the plains chasing — of all things — tornados. Somehow the chaos of tornados seems a lot more manageable than her very messy life back home. But, whether Jane returns home to a life of caring for her mother, or whether she strikes out in a different direction becomes the big question. And everyone — her brother, her best friend, and especially the handsome Max — has an opinion on what Jane should do.

But when her mother shows up in Tornado Alley drunk, insisting she come home, Jane fears she may have run out of options. The thought of a new life feels very far away, but not as far away as the last tornado Jane may ever chase, putting not only her life in danger, but the lives of the very people who may care about her most.
I've been following Lara since her debut book, Donut Days. I have her latest book in my TBR pile right now, but school is getting in my way.

Plus that cover is STUNNING. There's a freaking TORNADO IN A JAR!

WoW is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine!


  1. That IS a tornado in a jar - and now it makes me wonder if we can recreate such phenomena in jars! :) I haven't read any of her books, but I will have to check it out!

  4. Wow! This sounds good, but also might add to my paranoia of tornadoes. Seriously, I turn into a paranoid, terrified child when it's bad weather. Drives me nuts.

    The cover IS stunning. It's really cool. I may have to check out more about this and add it to my list.

    Thanks for sharing! Great pick. I forgot to do my WoW this week! Ha!
