Waiting On Wednesday (10).

Waiting On Wednesday is from Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

A Little Wanting Song by Cath Crowley
A summer of friendship, romance, and songs in major chords. . . .
CHARLIE DUSKIN loves music, and she knows she's good at it. But she only sings when she's alone, on the moonlit porch or in the back room at Old Gus's Secondhand Record and CD Store. Charlie's mom and grandmother have both died, and this summer she's visiting her grandpa in the country, surrounded by ghosts and grieving family, and serving burgers to the local kids at the milk bar. She's got her iPod, her guitar, and all her recording equipment, but she wants more: A friend. A dad who notices her. The chance to show Dave Robbie that she's not entirely unspectacular.
ROSE BUTLER lives next door to Charlie's grandfather and spends her days watching cars pass on the freeway and hanging out with her troublemaker boyfriend. She loves Luke but can't wait to leave their small country town. And she's figured out a way: she's won a scholarship to a science school in the city, and now she has to convince her parents to let her go. This is where Charlie comes in. Charlie, who lives in the city, and whom Rose has ignored for years. Charlie, who just might be Rose's ticket out.

I'm a sucker for alternating viewpoints. Could possibly be cheesy, but I'm intrigued.


  1. This sounds intriguing! Thanks for posting about it - adding it to my list! :)

  2. I'm looking forward to this as well (I think alternate POVs are great too!). I love the cover and how it's in black and white but has a little coloured design on the side. Great pick thanks for sharing!

  3. Ooooh new one for my wishlist - sounds good.

  4. I love girls with boys names and I love contemp books that involve summer romance, friends, and music. So, yes...this is on my list! :)
