Waiting on Wednesday #26



Displacement by Thalia Chaltas
Release Date: June 2011

Home is supposed to be a place you belong. It’s supposed to be parents who are there and siblings who bug you and a life that feels comfortable. It’s not supposed to be an absentee mother or a drowned sister. But that’s Vera’s reality, and she can’t stand it anymore. So she runs.


She ends up in an old mining town in the middle of the California desert. It’s hot, it’s dusty, and it’s as isolated as Vera feels. As she goes about setting up her life, she also unwittingly starts the process of healing and—eventually—figuring out what home might really mean for her.


This has an Amber Read written all over it! I love a good growth story within characters.

This sounds really good and I've never heard of it. Is it YA? It doesn't matter, I'm gonna add it to my TBR list pronto. Pretty cover!

Cool pick! Want to read that one too. I've been wondering if it's in verse like Thalia's first novel, do you know? :S
