"Waiting On" Wednesday: Light from a Distant Star
"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:
Light from a Distant Star
Publication Date: September 13
From Library Journal:
With her father’s business in trouble and her mother now working, 13-year-old Nellie is the determined caretaker of her little brother. The adults she does encounter, like the thuggish guy who works at her grandfather’s junkyard and the stripper who rents an apartment at the back of the house, upend her life further. Then, a moment of violence lands Nellie in court as witness, where no one believes the awful truth she’s trying to relay. As evidenced by her many novels, from National Book Award nominee Vanished to Oprah pick Songs in Ordinary Time, Morris excels at family dramas with dark and tingly psychological twists.
What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This is my first time participating. Thanks for hosting Jill! I love to look at waiting on wednesday's every week.
Looks interesting, the cover is nice ^^
Cool pick this week! :)
The title along is something that would catch me, but the flap would probably keep me. It's good that there are books discussing themes like this.
Though that book isn't in my usual genres it does sound interesting.
