Waiting on Wednesday (012)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It's a great way to learn about books you haven't heard of before.

This week, I'm featuring one that comes out in June of this year by Dial Books!

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Release Date: June 14th, 2012
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers
Pages: 395
Genre: YA Contemporary
"One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time."
The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen year old Samantha wishes she was one of them… until the day Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything.
Jase can sense that his beautiful neighbor is missing something in her sterile home, and as the two fall fiercely in love, his family makes her one of their own.
But when the bottom drops out of Sam's world, which perfect family will save her–and will her perfect love survive?
Set among the haves and have-nots of a coastal New England town, My LIFE NEXT DOOR captures the angst, the heartache, and the raw-nerve emotions of first time love—and biting loss.

Why I'm excited:
There just aren't enough contemporary books coming out this year, especially from debut authors. At least not ones I'm too excited about. But this one is very intriguing and I can't wait to read it! I may wait a month or so after the release to see the reviews.
I love that cover. And I love that dress she's wearing. If I saw this on a store shelf, I'd definitely be interested enough to pick it up!

What are YOU excited about!?
