This week's pre-publication can't wait to read selection is:
The Blackberry Bush
by David Housholder
Publication Date: June 1, 2011
Two babies, —Kati and Josh, —are born on opposite sides of the world at the very moment the Berlin Wall falls. You’'d think such a potent freedom metaphor would become the soundtrack for their lives, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Despite his flawless image, Josh, an artistic and gifted California skateboarder, struggles to find his true role in the world, and his growing aggression eventually breaks him. Kati, a German with a penchant for classic Swiss watches and attic treasure-hunting, is crushed with disappointment for never being “enough” for anyone--—most especially her mother.
Craving liberation, Kati and Josh seem destined to claim their birthright of freedom together. After all, don'’t the “chance” encounters transform your life--…or are they really chance?
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
