Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to showcase unreleased novels that we're waiting for anxiously. This week I'm picking:
Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia
Pub. Date: July 12, 2011
Summary: Brought together each summer at a boarding school in Switzerland, three girls learn a lot more than just French and European culture. Shirin, an Iranian princess; Ingrid, a German-Canadian eccentric; and Vivien, a Cuban-Jewish New Yorker culinary phenom, are thrown into each other's lives when they become roommates.
This is a story of 3 paths slowly beginning to cross and merge as they spend the year apart, but the summers together. Through navigating the social-cultural shoals of the school, developing their adolescence, and learning the confusing and conflicting legacies of their families' past, Shirin, Ingrid, and Vivien form an unbreakable bond.
--Why I Chose Dreams of Significant Girls: I really love the summary, and the cover is pretty too. Plus, I love summer reads, and this one reminds me a tiny bit of one my favorite series, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Let me know what y'all's picks are this week. Happy reading!
