Waiting on Wednesday (111)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week is

Girls Don't Fly by Kristen Chandler
Myra is used to keeping her feet firmly on the ground. She's got four younger brothers, overworked parents, and a pregnant older sister, and if Myra wasn't there to take care of everyone, they'd probably fall apart. But when her boyfriend unceremoniously dumps her, Myra feels like she's lost her footing. Suddenly she's doing things she never would've a few months earlier: quitting her job, applying for a scholarship to study birds in the Galapogos, and falling for a guy who's encouraging her to leap from her old life . . . and fly.

Set in the Salt Lake City area, Girls Don't Fly is full of intelligence, humor, and is a refreshing change of pace for teen readers.
Is it just me or does this one sound amazing? It's no secret that I love contemporary fiction. Especially when it's good contemporary fiction, and I feel that this will be fitting into that category.

Girls Don't Fly will be released October 13, 2011!
