This week I'm eagerly anticipating...
by Jessica Martinez
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: October 15, 2013
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
No one has ever believed that Mo and Annie are just friends. How can a guy and a girl really be best friends?
Then the summer before senior year, Mo’s father loses his job, and by extension his work visa. Instantly, life for Annie and Mo crumbles. Although Mo has lived in America for most of his life, he’ll be forced to move to Jordan. The prospect of leaving his home is devastating, and returning to a world where he no longer belongs terrifies him.
Desperate to save him, Annie proposes they tell a colossal lie—that they are in love. Mo agrees because marrying Annie is the only way he can stay. Annie just wants to keep her best friend, but what happens when it becomes a choice between saving Mo and her own chance at real love?
Another title that I've read an eGalley of, and I think is well worth checking out. The issues that Annie and Mo faced were incredibly interesting to read about, and the way that Jessica Martinez handled difficult topics was great.
