"Waiting On" Wednesday: Falling Together


"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:

Falling Together
By Marisa de los Santos
Publication Date: October 4

From the author:

Pen, Will, and Cat met during their first week of their first year of college and struck up a remarkable friendship, one that sustained them and shaped them for years--until it ended abruptly, and they went their separate ways. Now, six years later, Pen is the single mother of a five year old girl, living with her older brother in Philadelphia and trying to make peace with the sudden death of her father. Even though she feels deserted by Will and Cat, she has never stopped wanting them back in her life, so when she receives an email from a desperate-sounding Cat asking her to meet her at their upcoming college reunion, Pen goes. What happens there sends past and present colliding and sends Pen and her friends on a journey across the world, a journey that will change everything.

Sounds like a realistic plot line. I'm sure many people have found themselves in such a position before. It will be interesting to see how things play out.

Great Summary! A good friend at work recommended her books to me and I'm reading Belong To Me for the local library book club! Very exciting to see a new book from her this year!

I would probably read a novel about rogue circus clowns if Marisa de los Santos wrote it...I love-love-love her first two books. So your pick works for me.
