"Waiting on" Wednesday: Roomies

WoW is brought to us by Jill at BreakingTheSpine. This weekly meme allows us to highlight the books we are most eagerly awaiting!

Author: Sara Zarr, Tara Altebrando

Release Day: December 24th, 2013

Summary: (goodreads) It's time to meet your new roomie.

When East Coast native Elizabeth receives her freshman-year roommate assignment, she shoots off an e-mail to coordinate the basics: television, microwave, mini-fridge. That first note to San Franciscan Lauren sparks a series of e-mails that alters the landscape of each girl's summer -- and raises questions about how two girls who are so different will ever share a dorm room.

As the countdown to college begins, life at home becomes increasingly complex. With family relationships and childhood friendships strained by change, it suddenly seems that the only people Elizabeth and Lauren can rely on are the complicated new boys in their lives . . . and each other. Even though they've never met.

National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr and acclaimed author Tara Altebrando join forces for a novel about growing up, leaving home, and getting that one fateful e-mail that assigns your college roommate.

My Thoughts: I am writing this five days before I meet my roommate, so to have a book accompany me through this new facet of my life would be just a little bit amazing. Its relatability is why I am hoping to get this novel soon. ASAP soon. They should have planned its release in September. I wonder how my experiences will differ or concur with those of the main characters and how much I will gush about it to the roomie. I project a whole lot.
