Waiting On Wednesday [@harperteen @carliesorosiak]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



IF BIRDS FLY BACK by Carlie Sorosiak

A sparkling debut about love, family, and the mysteries of the universe.

Linny has been fascinated by disappearances, ever since her sister Grace ran away in the middle of the night without saying goodbye.

Sebastian can tell you how many galaxies there are, and knows how much plutonium weighs. But the one thing he can’t figure out is the identity of his birth father.

They’ve never met, but Linny and Sebastian have one thing in common: an obsession with famous novelist and filmmaker Alvaro Herrera, who went missing three years ago and has just reappeared. As they learn more about the mystery of Alvaro, Linny and Sebastian uncover the answers they’ve been searching for.

With humor and heart, debut author Carlie Sorosiak weaves a story of finding people who leave and loving those who stay, perfect for fans of Jandy Nelson and Emery Lord.

Why?

It was the title that first caught my attention but then the book's description really made me want to read it. I love books that deal with familial relationships that are somehow out of the supposed ordinary so I'm intrigued by Linny and her missing sister and Sebastian who doesn't know his father's identity.

I am looking forward to seeing how Alvaro Herrera, his disappearance and now reemergence will play into Linny and Sebastian's searches for answers.
