Waiting On Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly event brought to you by Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming books we can’t wait to read.

This week I’m featuring a contemporary YA title that caught my eye. It’s a witty coming of age about secrets, sisters, friendships, and love, and it’s supposed to appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell and John Green. Plus, it’s already been optioned for film by Warner Bros.

Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan

Title Summary:

love and other foreign words

Can anyone be truly herself–or truly in love–in a language that’s not her own?

Sixteen-year-old Josie lives her life in translation. She speaks High School, College, Friends, Boyfriends, Break-ups, and even the language of Beautiful Girls. But none of these is her native tongue–the only people who speak that are her best friend Stu and her sister Kate. So when Kate gets engaged to an epically insufferable guy, how can Josie see it as anything but the mistake of a lifetime? Kate is determined to bend Josie to her will for the wedding; Josie is determined to break Kate and her fiancé up. As battles are waged over secrets and semantics, Josie is forced to examine her feelings for the boyfriend who says he loves her, the sister she loves but doesn’t always like, and the best friend who hasn’t said a word–at least not in a language Josie understands.

I like this style of cover, even though we’ve been seeing it a lot. And the navy background and typography is so clean and pretty. Humorous YA is always appealing to me, and it does sound like LOVE would make a great movie, what with the wedding and all.

What book is on your radar this week?
