Waiting On Wednesday #1 - Joyride by Anna Banks

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights new upcoming books that readers are looking forward to reading.

This week I'm waiting on Joyride by Anna Banks

 A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Why I'm waiting:

I've been really into contemporary books lately and for some reason this synopsis caught my eye as I was going through upcoming releases! Plus I've been meaning to read some of Anna's work for awhile now ;)

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
