Waiting On Wednesday: Salvation

Author: Anne Osterlund
Publisher: Penguin Young Readers
Expected Publication: January 10, 2013

Salvador Resendez--Salva to his friends--appears to have it all. His Mexican immigrant family has high expectations, and Salva intends to fulfill them. He's student body president, quarterback of the football team, and has a near-perfect GPA. Everyone loves him.

Especially Beth Courant, AKA the walking disaster area. Dreamy and shy, Beth is used to blending into the background. But she's also smart, and she has serious plans for her future.

Popular guy and bookish girl--the two have almost nothing in common. Until fate throws them together and the attraction is irresistible. Soon Beth is pushing Salva to set his sights higher than ever--because she knows he has more to offer, more than even he realizes.

Then tragedy strikes--and threatens to destroy everything that Salva has worked for. Will Beth's love be enough to save him?

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund so I'm excited to see her latest work. This synopsis also reminds me of Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry which I really enjoyed so I'm double excited. Luckily if you are impatient like me the wait isn't too much longer, January is fast approaching!


  1. This does sound similar to some other romance books I have read but still a good story! Opposites thrown together that end up being good for each other!
    My WOW

  2. I'm not a big fan of contemporary reads right now, but if I force myself to read them I usually end up enjoying the story. This one sounds like one of those books.

  3. I've been on a huge contemp kick and will put this on my library list. Thanks for sharing!


  4. This one does sound good but I am a little disappointed that she has veered away from science fiction. I hope you enjoy it when it arrives.

  5. This sounds really great! I'll definitely be adding it to my TBR :)

  6. It does sound a bit similar to PTL! I really loved that book too, will have to add this one to the list then!!

    Thanx for visiting my WoW!

  9. I haven't read anything by this author but thanks for featuring this as now I want to read it too!
