Waiting on Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Second Chance Summer
By Morgan Matson

224 pages
Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, to be released May 8, 2012

Taylor's family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then Taylor's dad gets devastating news that changes everything. Her parents decide that the family will spend the summer together at their old vacation home in the Pocono Mountains.

Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.

As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they’ve ever been before. But all of them are very aware that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love.

Are you guys sick of me going on and on and on about how much I loved Morgan Matson's book Amy & Roger's Epic Detour? TOO BAD! Because I'm going to be raving about that book for years to come. And based on the description alone, I think Second Chance Summer could be a favorite of mine in the making.
