Waiting on Wednesday: Snow Lane by Josephine Angelini



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.  You can also check out Can't-Wait Wednesday hosted by Wishful Endings.

Snow Lane by Josephine (Josie) Angelini
Release Date: January 2, 2018

I have been a fan of Josie's since reading her Starcrossed series, which I would highly recommend if you haven't read it.  She just posted on her blog about her upcoming release Snow Lane, which is based upon true stories from her childhood, but it is still a work of fiction.  Like the character in this book, Josie is from a large family.  She was the youngest of eight children and was encouraged by her husband, agent, and editor to share some of her hilarious family stories.  Snow Lane sounds more contemporary than her other books, so I am definitely intrigued.  

Snow Lane
Overview:

Fifth grader Annie is just like every other girl in her small suburban town. 
Except she’s starting to realize that she isn’t.
Annie is the youngest of nine children. Instead of condemned to the lowest spot on the totem pole, she wants to carve out place for herself in the world. But it’s hard to find your destiny when the only thing you’re good at is being cheerful. Annie is learning that it’s difficult to be Annie, period, and not just because her clothes are worn-out hand-me-downs, and she suffers from a crippling case of dyslexia, but also because there are secrets in her life no one in her family is willing to face.

Snow Lane is a story about a resilient girl who, in spite of many hardships, can still find light in the darkest of places.
