This week I am waiting on
The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian
Publication Date: April 26th 2016
What if your town was sliding underwater and everyone was ordered to pack up and leave? How would you and your friends spend your last days together?
While the adults plan for the future, box up their possessions, and find new places to live, Keeley Hewitt and her friends decide to go out with a bang. There are parties in abandoned houses. Canoe races down Main Street. The goal is to make the most of every minute they still have together.
And for Keeley, that means taking one last shot at the boy she’s loved forever.
There’s a weird sort of bravery that comes from knowing there’s nothing left to lose. You might do things you normally wouldn’t. Or say things you shouldn’t. The reward almost always outweighs the risk.
It’s the end of Aberdeen, but the beginning of Keeley’s first love story. It just might not turn out the way she thought. Because it’s not always clear what’s worth fighting for and what you should let become a memory.
I don’t know what it is about this book but I just can’t help but feel drawn to it. Maybe it’s the race against time. Maybe it’s the promise of a cute romance. Or maybe it’s about the exploration of the way people react when their whole lives are turned upside down and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Either way, I am so excited to see what this book has to offer.
What’s your most anticipated?
