Waiting On Wednesday (47)

This week I'm waiting on...

Flyaway by Helen Landalf
Fifteen-year-old Stevie Calhoun is used to taking care of herself. But one night, her mom, who works as an exotic dancer in a downtown Seattle nightclub, never comes home.

That’s the night Stevie’s life turns upside down.

It’s the night that kicks off an extraordinary summer: the summer Stevie has to stay with her annoyingly perfect Aunt Mindy; the summer she learns to care for injured and abandoned birds; the summer she gets to know Alan, the meanest guy in high school.

But most of all, it’s the summer she finds out the truth about Mom.

FLYAWAY is the story of a teen girl’s struggle to hold on to what she’s always believed, even as her world spins out of control.

Coming December 19th from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
My first thought was that this sounded like Fred Figglehorn's mom. My second thought was that this book sounds really good. And, bonus for those participating in The Story Siren's challenge: It's a 2011 debut.


  1. O0ooh sounds cool! Nice pick.

  2. This is the first I have heard of this one but it sounds great. I will have to check it out. Great WOW pick!

  3. I like the sound of this one! Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)
