Waiting on Wednesday - (un)Conventional Bookviews

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…

 Waiting on Wednesday #27 – Language Arts

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.

Thanks for stopping by, have a fantastic Wednesday! Don’t forget to leave me a link in your comment so I can come and check out your Waiting on Wednesday post, too.

    • I know, right? And finding the exact right word for the right situation is sometimes really hard, but when it happens, a sentence turns out really beautiful!
      Happy Wednesday, Brandee *BIG HUGS*

    • I’ve been eying this for a while, and I’ve requested it – but I haven’t been accepted *cries*
      Thanks for stopping by, Fi!

    • YAY for B.A’s in linguistics, Micheline 😉 I can’t wait to read Language Arts… it just calls out to me completely.

    • LOL, it’s funny how many commenters get stuck on the Italian speaking nun 😀 I agree, though, this books sounds really different, and very good.

  1. Lexxie, thank you so very much for your interest in LANGUAGE ARTS! Thanks to all the folks who commented as well. This third literary “baby” had a very challenging journey into the world, so your pre-publication enthusiasm means more to me than you can possibly know. I hope you’ll consider subscribing to my newsletter and/or following me on my “Stephanie Kallos – writer” Facebook page.
    Again, sending big gratitude to you and your followers – and wishes for happy reading in 2015!
