Publication: September 20th 2016

Publisher: Viking BFYR

Genres: YA, Contemporary

The bestselling author of Mosquitoland brings us another batch of unforgettable characters in this tragicomedy about first love and devastating loss.

Victor Benucci and Madeline Falco have a story to tell.
It begins with the death of Vic’s father.
It ends with the murder of Mad’s uncle.
The Hackensack Police Department would very much like to hear it.
But in order to tell their story, Vic and Mad must focus on all the chapters in between.

This is a story about:

1. A coded mission to scatter ashes across New Jersey.
2. The momentous nature of the Palisades in winter.
3. One dormant submarine.
4. Two songs about flowers.
5. Being cool in the traditional sense.
6. Sunsets & ice cream & orchards & graveyards.
7. Simultaneous extreme opposites.
8. A narrow escape from a war-torn country.
9. A story collector.
10. How to listen to someone who does not talk.
11. Falling in love with a painting.
12. Falling in love with a song.
13. Falling in love.

Why Am I Waiting?

I absolutely loved Mosquitoland last year! It made my “best of 2015” list, and I am really hoping to love this next book of his. I love his writing and am eager to get my hands on this one. What are you waiting on this week?

  3. I haven’t read Mosquitoland yet either but it sounds like a promising read and this one sounds interesting but I want to see some reviews for it before I think about reading it myself first 😀

  4. I’ve heard that “Mosquitoland” was really good, so I’d like to read it. I don’t read much realistic fiction (I much prefer fantasy, SF, and urban fantasy, as well as PNR), but occasionally I do like to pick up a realistic novel. This one sounds like a worthy successor to “Mosquitoland”, so thanks for featuring it, because I’d like to read it, as well!

    Thanks as well for commenting on my own WOW post!! 🙂

  7. DON’T KILL ME KEISHA, but I still have not tried Mosquitoland. IDK Why but there is just something about it that never really… called out to me? Maybe I’ll try it but I think I’m going to wait to see what you have to say about this book before I make any important decisions. 😉

  8. I haven’t read Mosquitoland yet though it’s been on my TBR for a while now. This new one of his sounds terrific. I should get to Mosquitoland before this one releases!
