Wishlist Wednesday #6

Property of Pen to Paper!


It's...Wishlist Wednesday time! This is a meme where book bloggers, like myself, can share and squeal what they cannot wait for to be either released or received. It's hosted by the lovely Dani at Pen to Paper, so go check out hers and the list of others who are participating.

On to what I'm wishing for!

Things I know about Reece Malcolm:

1. She graduated from New York University.
2. She lives in or near Los Angeles.
3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week.
4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon.
5. She’s my mother.

Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much.

L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love.

But then the Reece Malcolm list gets a surprising new entry. Now that Devan is so close to having it all, can she handle the possibility of losing everything?

I personally love stories like this, where they find long-lost family member and are forced to live with them. It's not exactly the same, but I think of Sarah Dessen's Lock and Key. I'm always interested to see how they get along and what feelings will be brought to the surface.

The only worry I have with this is that it will be centered too much on Devan's new life and not on the dynamic with her and her mother. I'm not saying I want it to be ONLY AND ALL about just them (because I am interested in her new life and with her love interest), but I don't want the parent to be ignored once again in a YA novel. I especially don't want her mother to be just passed over...considering this is partly about her.

What are you wishing for?
