Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


by Diana Spechler
Publication date: April 26, 2011

To escape the grief she feels following her father’s death, twenty-six year old Brooklynite Gray Lachmann becomes a counselor at a summer camp for overweight children, where she discovers she has her own demons to battle both emotionally and physically. In Skinny, the ambitious, accomplished, and darkly humorous second novel from reader-favorite Diana Spechler—a vividly realized cast of characters must come to terms with eating disorders, buried secrets, and the trials of growing up.
