"Waiting On" Wednesday: Fin and Lady

"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:


Fin and Lady
By Cathleen Schine

Publication Date: July 9

From Amazon:

It’s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn’t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut to Greenwich Village, smack in the middle of the swinging ’60s. He soon learns that Lady—giddy, careless, urgent, and obsessed with being free—is as much his responsibility as he is hers. Fin and Lady lead their lives against the background of the ’60s, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War—Lady pursued by ardent, dogged suitors, Fin determined to protect his impulsive sister from them and from herself.

Erin OMalley said...

I hadn't heard of this book, but it definitely looks interesting. This may sound odd, but I think I'd be racing to this book faster if it wasn't set in the 60's.

That sounds like a lot of fun. I'll have to make sure the library where I work is getting a copy. :)
