Waiting On: From What I Remember...

From What I Remember... by Stacy Kramer, Valerie Thomas
To be published: May 15, 2012 by Hyperion
KYLIE: Tijuana WHAT? I should be putting the finishing touches on my valedictorian speech. Graduation is TODAY, and is this a wedding band on my finger.

MAX: It all started with Kylie's laptop and a truck full of stolen electronics Okay, it was kind of hot, the way she broke us out like some chick in an action movie. But now we're stranded in Tijuana. With less than twenty-four hours before graduation. Awesome.

WILL: Saving Kylie Flores from herself is kind of a full-time occupation. Luckily, I, Will Bixby, was born for the job. And when I found out she was stuck in Mexico with dreamy Max Langston, sure, I agreed to bring their passports across the border--but there's no reason to rush back home right away. This party is just getting started.

LILY: I just walked in on my boyfriend, Max Langston, canoodling with Kylie Flores, freak of the century. Still, I can't completely hold it against him. He NEEDS me. It's even clearer now. And I'm not giving him up without a fight.

The thing about life is that sometimes it’s nothing like you planned. Even when you’ve planned absolutely everything. One reckless misstep can turn your carefully calibrated world upside down. And righting things again can be damn near impossible. But just maybe, that’s the best thing that could have happened... {}

When I first heard about this book, my initial reaction was - YES! I WANT! I got ridiculously excited over the premise.  I have a thing for contemporary novels that throw in a "mission" of some sort.  These teens being stranded in Mexico, without their passports, on a race against the clock dishes up some good drama!  I can't wait to read this one :)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



  1. This one sounds good. And I love the cover; I couldn't find that cover while I searched for it. I'm definitely adding this one to my tbr pile. Just like you, I love contemporaries with a sort of quest. Sounds awesome! Happy reading!

    1. I actually found the cover on the author's website. :-)

  2. I love to read comtemporary YA, but I have never heard of this book before. It sounds really good. I'll have to add it to my tbr.
