Waiting on Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker

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

Unbreak My Heart By Melissa Walker
240 pages
Bloomsbury USA Childrens, to be released May 22, 2012

Sophomore year broke Clementine Williams’ heart. She fell for her best friend’s boyfriend and long story short: he’s excused, but Clem is vilified and she heads into summer with zero social life.

Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but floating away sounds pretty good right now.

Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?

Told in alternating chapters that chronicle the year that broke Clem’s heart and the summer that healed it, Unbreak My Heart is a wonderful dual love story that fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti will flock to.

Yes, Ms. Book Description Writer! You have nailed the audience for this book -- sounds like a Dessen/Caletti/Colasanti book, which immediately appeals to me.

Plus, summer + boys + sailboats + introspection? I sense this is going to be a lovely early summer read.
