Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Something Like Normal 
by Trish Doller
Release Date: June 19th 2012

A powerful debut novel about a young Marine's return home from Afghanistan and the new life and love he finds while fending off the ghosts of war.

When Travis Stephenson returns home from Afghanistan, his parents are on the brink of divorce, his brother has stolen his girlfriend and his car, and nightmares of his best friend getting killed keep him completely spooked. But when he runs into Harper Gray, a girl who despises him for trashing her reputation with a middle school lie, life actually starts looking up. As Travis and Harper see more of each other, he starts falling for her and a way through the family meltdown, the post-traumatic stress, and the possibility of an interesting future begins to emerge.

His sense of humor, sense of his own strength, and incredible sense of honor make Travis an irresistible and eminently lovable hero in this fantastic and timely debut novel.

This is probably my number1 most anticipated debut book of 2012, I don't think I can wait until June to get my hands on this. I'm going to enter every freaking giveaway/contest for this. I think this book will appear A LOT in this blog, just saying :). 

Male POV + older characters + military + contemporary = MY FAVOURITE. :D
Also, I've read the first chapter and excerpt (click here) on Trish's official website. I am OBSESSED.

COVER THOUGHTS: At first I wasn't so sure, but the longer I look at it, the more I love it. I love the colours, and the way the font and words are placed are just very unique and fresh.
The tagline is the best - War is only half the battle.  Probably the best tagline EVER.
