Waiting on Wednesday (7/24/13) - Out of Play by Jolene Perry and Nyrae Dawn

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking Spine.  It's just a quick look at the books we're all looking forward to.  This week I am looking forward to Out of Play by Jolene Perry and Nyrae Dawn.   
Out of Play
by Jolene Perry and Nyrae Dawn
Publication Date:  August 6, 2013
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

Rock star drummer Bishop Riley doesn't have a drug problem. Celebrities—especially ones suffering from anxiety—just need a little help taking the edge off sometimes. After downing a few too many pills, Bishop wakes up in the hospital facing an intervention. If he wants to stay in the band, he’ll have to detox while under house arrest in Seldon, Alaska. 

Hockey player Penny Jones can't imagine a life outside of Seldon. Though she has tons of scholarship offers to all the best schools, the last thing she wants is to leave. Who'll take care of her absentminded gramps? Not her mother, who can’t even be bothered to come home from work, let alone deal with their new tenants next door. 

Penny’s not interested in dealing with Bishop’s crappy attitude, and Bishop’s too busy sneaking pills to care. Until he starts hanging out with Gramps and begins to see what he’s been missing. If Bishop wants a chance with the fiery girl next door, he’ll have to admit he has a problem and kick it. Too bad addiction is hard to kick…and Bishop’s about to run out of time.

  1. Ooooo... I'll definitely need to check this out. :) I really liked Dizzy, which they both wrote together, and the premise of this sounds really interesting (and potentially heartbreaking). Great pick, Ellen!

    P.S. - Thanks for visiting our WoW! :)
