I’m really excited about what I have going up today. Hannah from The Irish Banana Review recently started officially organizing blog tours (and she’s really, really good at it.) Anyways, she put together this fabulous spotlight of the winter Harper Teen titles and I was lucky enough to be on board! 45 days of incredible books and bloggers sure to keep you reading your way through winter. So without further ado…
Novel: The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan | Goodreads
Release Date: March 1, 2016
Middie Daniels calls it the Leaving Season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.
This year Middie’s boyfriend Nate is the one leaving. Nate, who’s so perfect that she can barely believe it. Nate, who makes her better than she is on her own. Nate, who’s promised to come back once he’s finished his gap year volunteering in Central America. And when he does, it’ll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him.
But when a tragedy strikes, Middie’s whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is… except for Nate’s slacker best friend Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.
Cat Jordan’s heartbreaking story proves that no matter the season, no matter the obstacles, love can help you find yourself in the most unexpected of places.
Doesn’t that sound fantastic? It’s a sweet, humbling story with a likable narrator. It’s a quiet one too, but I think it will affect those who read it. I’ll be posting a longer, full-length review when we get a little closer to the release. For now though, enter to win it!
