"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Leading Indicators
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
By Gregg Easterbrook
Publication Date: November 13
Margo and Tom Helot have the perfect life. They inhabit a fully redecorated home situated in the peaceful, leafy suburb of a major American city. Their family is rounded out by two delightful children well on their way to achieving perfect Ivy League applications. Everything has turned out more or less as they'd hoped and expected it would. Until, that is, it all comes crashing down around them when Tom's boss reveals that their company is bankrupt. Forced into the job market just as the Dow plummets and unemployment starts to spike, Tom finds himself buffeted by the winds of misfortune, bouncing from one failing company to the next and towing his family into a maelstrom of debt and financial insecurity. With nowhere else to turn, he and Margo must make the ultimate choice to save their family's future.

This isn't really the type of book I enjoy reading - sounds a little bit too close to reality with the economy the way it is these days - but the blurb is good and I'm sure the writing is too.
This one looks interesting!

Sophie @ The Dreaming Reader
Not something I'd usually try, but it sounds interesting.My WOW
This one actually sounds a bit too realistic, and kind of depressing to me!
Thanks for sharing! This seems like an intense book. Maybe a bit too much of reality for a lot of people in the world now.
First time to link to WoW- what a great idea to have a weekly post about books we are waiting on!
That sounds like a story snatched from the headlines.
My first time doing WoW! love it :)
I agree with what's been said, sounds so current for the time we're in.
