Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine to put a spotlight on upcoming books.

This week's title is:

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Motson 

Taylor's family might not be the closest-knit – everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled – but for the most part, they get along fine. Then they get news that changes everything: Her father has pancreatic cancer, and it's stage four – meaning that there is basically nothing to be done. Her parents decide that the family will spend his last months together at their old summerhouse in the Pocono Mountains.

Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven't actually gone anywhere. Her former summer best friend is suddenly around, as is her first boyfriend. . . and he's much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.
As the summer progresses, the Edwards become more of a family, and closer than they've ever been before. But all of them very aware that they're battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance – with family, with friends, and with love.

I loved Motson's debut and its one of my favorite of all times

I've never heard of this one before. It sounds like a book that will need a box of tissues going by the synopsis.

Btw- I'm giving away an ARC of Legend and it ends tonight if you haven't entered yet. ;)

Hooray for more Morgan Matson! I can't wait for this one either. It sounds like it's going to be SO good!
