Waiting On...

Title: The Leaving Season
Author: Cat Jordan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: March 1, 2016
Middie Daniels calls it the Leaving Season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.

This year Middie’s boyfriend Nate is the one leaving. Nate, who’s so perfect that she can barely believe it. Nate, who makes her better than she is on her own. Nate, who’s promised to come back once he’s finished his gap year volunteering in Central America. And when he does, it’ll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him.

But when a tragedy strikes, Middie’s whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is… except for Nate’s slacker best friend Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.

Cat Jordan’s heartbreaking story proves that no matter the season, no matter the obstacles, love can help you find yourself in the most unexpected of places.

Why I'm Waiting...

Leaving home is one of those moments that everyone goes through. Some people move off to school, and others might leave just to get away from their parents. With that leaving, we leave behind the friends that have been by our side throughout life.

I love the idea of seeing this topic explored in literature, and Middie's story is one that I've been looking forward to reading for a long time. I can't wait to see what this tragedy is and how everyone copes with it. I'm also hoping to see the kids in this novel discover who they really are.
