Waiting On Wednesday 6/15/16: Run by Kody Keplinger






Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It's a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about books they're most looking forward to. 
This week I'm waiting for Run by Kody Keplinger


Synopsis



RunBo Dickinson is a girl with a wild reputation, a deadbeat dad, and a mama who's not exactly sober most of the time. Everyone in town knows the Dickinsons are a bad lot, but Bo doesn't care what anyone thinks.
Agnes Atwood has never gone on a date, never even stayed out past ten, and never broken any of her parents' overbearing rules. Rules that are meant to protect their legally blind daughter -- protect her from what, Agnes isn't quite sure.

Despite everything, Bo and Agnes become best friends. And it's the sort of friendship that runs truer and deeper than anything else.

So when Bo shows up in the middle of the night, with police sirens wailing in the distance, desperate to get out of town, Agnes doesn't hesitate to take off with her. But running away and not getting caught will require stealing a car, tracking down Bo's dad, staying ahead of the authorities, and -- worst of all -- confronting some ugly secrets.


Why I'm Waiting

I read the Duff by Keplinger not that long ago and thought it was okay (I loved the movie), so I am interested to see what this one is like. I also love how easy her books, are to read and with my summer class being slightly more involved then I thought it would be, I kind of need some easy reads right now.

  1. Been seeing this one a lot and I'm very curious about the story too. It seems like an emotional read with a lot going on. I haven't read the DUFF but have seen the movie and quite enjoyed it. So I look forward to experiencing the author's writing for the first time with this one. Thanks for sharing :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. This one does sound interesting and I haven't heard of it, but it looks promising. I'd be curious to see how they do on the run, especially with one of the protags being blind (wondering if she's really blind or just very very nearsighted). Anyway nice pick!

  4. OMG, did this author do The Duff? I loved that movie! I haven't read the book either though, I wouldn't be able to bear it if it wasn't as good as the movie! Great pick!

    2. Yes its the same author. I wouldn't say it's not as good as the movie, I was just disappointed in some of the actions the characters did in the book. Thank you
