This week I am waiting on
In a Perfect World by Trish Doller
Publication Date: May 23rd 2017
Caroline Kelly is excited to be spending her summer vacation working at the local amusement park with her best friend, exploring weird Ohio with her boyfriend, and attending soccer camp with the hope she’ll be her team’s captain in the fall.
But when Caroline’s mother is hired to open an eye clinic in Cairo, Egypt, Caroline’s plans are upended. Caroline is now expected to spend her summer and her senior year in a foreign country, away from her friends, her home, and everything she’s ever known.
With this move, Caroline predicts she’ll spend her time navigating crowded streets, eating unfamiliar food, and having terrible bouts of homesickness. But what she finds instead is a culture that surprises her, a city that astounds her, and a charming, unpredictable boy who challenges everything she thought she knew about life, love, and privilege.
I must admit, I have a serious case of cover love with this book. I’ve been looking forwards to reading a new Trish Doller book and this sounds like my cup of tea. I’m excited to see how Caroline adjusts to this new life and hopefully get a chance to explore the history and culture of Egypt along the way.
What’s your most anticipated book?
