Waiting on Wednesday #59

Photobucket
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:

#1


Title: Ink is Thicker Than Water
Genre: contemporary
Audience:  YA
Author: Amy Spalding
Release date: December 3rd, 2013
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

Summary:

For Kellie Brooks, family has always been a tough word to define. Combine her hippie mom and tattooist stepdad, her adopted overachieving sister, her younger half brother, and her tough-love dad, and average Kellie’s the one stuck in the middle, overlooked and impermanent. When Kellie’s sister finally meets her birth mother and her best friend starts hanging with a cooler crowd, the feeling only grows stronger.
But then she reconnects with Oliver, the sweet and sensitive college guy she had a near hookup with last year. Oliver is intense and attractive, and she’s sure he’s totally out of her league. But as she discovers that maybe intensity isn’t always a good thing, it’s yet another relationship she feels is spiraling out of her control.
It’ll take a new role on the school newspaper and a new job at her mom’s tattoo shop for Kellie to realize that defining herself both outside and within her family is what can finally allow her to feel permanent, just like a tattoo.

 Why I want to read it:

The cover looks pretty nice and I liked Amy Spalding's writing style with The Reece Malcolm List.

Torn between love and loyalty, Avry must choose her path carefully. For the future of her world depends on her decision….
