"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Girls Like Us

Title: Girls Like Us
Author: Gail Giles
Hardcover, 224 pages
Expected publication: May 27th 2014 
Publisher: Candlewick Press

From Goodreads:

We understand stuff. We just learn it slow. And most of what we understand is that people what ain’t Speddies think we too stupid to get out our own way. And that makes me mad. 

Quincy and Biddy are both graduates of their high school’s special ed program, but they couldn’t be more different: suspicious Quincy faces the world with her fists up, while gentle Biddy is frightened to step outside her front door. When they’re thrown together as roommates in their first "real world" apartment, it initially seems to be an uneasy fit. But as Biddy’s past resurfaces and Quincy faces a harrowing experience that no one should have to go through alone, the two of them realize that they might have more in common than they thought — and more important, that they might be able to help each other move forward.

Hard-hitting and compassionate, Girls Like Us is a story about growing up in a world that can be cruel, and finding the strength — and the support — to carry on.


WHY WE'RE WAITING:
 We all know that growing up and entering the adult word is not an easy stage in our life, so after reading the synopsis of this book, we were all very curious about the story of both Quincy and Biddy. We have never read a book of Gail Giles too, so this book might be the book that will make us fall for her other works.

What are you waiting for? Tell us below! :)
