I've been on a real YA kick lately, so I've been trying to find more YA authors I enjoy. I recently read Waiting for You by Susane Colasanti. Waiting for You is the story of a teen girl's love life and family life.
Marisa, the main character, deals with renewing and maintaining old friendships, a first boyfriend, and her parents' break-up.
I listened to the audio version of Waiting for You and it seemed to drag. It is about 7 hours long and about 3.5 hours in, I looked at my phone (love audible's android app) and was shocked to see I was only that far. It really dragged. The last couple hours picked up, but I never got caught up in the story.
I'll try another book by Colasanti, but it'll be one I check out from the library, not one I buy.
