Waiting on Wednesday: Girls Don’t Fly

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Amazon:

Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She’s got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn’t there to take care of everyone, they’d probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she’s lost her footing. Suddenly she’s doing things she never would’ve a few months earlier: quitting her job, applying for a scholarship to study birds in the Galapogos, and falling for a guy who’s encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.

Set on the shores of the Great Salt Lake, Girls Don’t Fly is a tale of evolution, the personal kind.


Girls Don’t Fly by Kristen Chandler will be released by Viking Juvenile on October 13, 2011. It looks like it has a delightful balance of fun, flirting, and impulsiveness as well as science, ambition, and identity crisis. I also really want the author’s first book, Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me. I’m a sucker for the animal books, but I’m sure that’s no surprise.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
