Waiting on Wednesday: Girls Don't Fly

Weekly meme hosted by Jill

This week's choice is Girls don't Fly by Kristen Chandler

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 in the Salt Lake City area, Girls Don't Fly is full of intelligence, humor, and is a refreshing change of pace for teen readers.

I read Chandler's debut, Boys, wolves and other things that might kill me, at the beginning of this year and I absolutely looooved it.
So I was thrilled to find out Kristen was gonna have another book out this year, I really really can't wait for it. It comes out next week (the 13th) so the waiting is almost over! yay!
