"Waiting On" Wednesday: This Is Just Exactly Like You

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

This Is Just Exactly Like You
By Drew Perry
Publication Date: April 1

From Amazon:

When Jack Lang impulsively buys a second house directly across the street from his own, his wife Beth leaves him and their six-year-old autistic son, Hendrick, to move in with Jack's best friend. Jack tells everyone in his life he's okay, but no one believes him. Not his employees at Patriot Mulch & Tree in suburban North Carolina, not Beth herself, and not Canavan's estranged girlfriend Rena, who arrives on Jack's doorstep to see how, and whether, he's bearing up. When Jack starts letting Rena further into his life, and when Hendrick suddenly starts speaking fluent Spanish, stunning everyone, it becomes apparent to Jack that the world is far more complicated than he believed.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Didn't do my own WOW this week due to a self-imposed holiday break, but wanted to stop by all the same. This one looks really interesting, and I'm always interested in up and coming Southern authors.
