Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place to showcase a book we’re really looking forward to with bated breath! A new release in our favorite series, an exciting new title from a favorite author…
This week, the book I’m waiting for is by an author I’ve never read before, but the blurb and the title just really made me want to read it. It will be released on June 9th 2015!
Language Arts – Stephanie Kallos
Sometimes the most powerful words are the ones you’re still searching for.
Charles Marlow teaches his high school English students that language will expand their worlds. But linguistic precision cannot help him connect with his autistic son, or with his ex-wife, who abandoned their shared life years before, or even with his college-bound daughter who has just flown the nest. He’s at the end of a road he’s traveled on autopilot for years when a series of events forces him to think back on the lifetime of decisions and indecisions that have brought him to this point. With the help of an ambitious art student, an Italian-speaking nun, and the memory of a boy in a white suit who inscribed his childhood with both solace and sorrow, Charles may finally be able to rewrite the script of his life.
From the best-selling author of Broken for You, Language Arts is an affecting tale of love, loss, and language—its powers and its perils.
