"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Summer We Read Gatsby

"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:

The Summer We Read Gatsby
By Danielle Ganek
Publication Date: May 27

From Amazon:

Half-sisters Cassie and Peck could not be more different. Cassie is a newly divorced journalist with her feet firmly planted on the ground; Peck is a vintage-obsessed actress with her head in the clouds. In fact, the only thing they seem to have in common is their inheritance of Fool's House, a rundown cottage left to them by their beloved Aunt Lydia. But Cassie and Peck can't afford the house, and they can't agree on anything, much less what to do with the place. As these two sisters try to understand their aunt's puzzling instructions to "seek a thing of utmost value" from within the house, they're both distracted by entanglements with men from their pasts.

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