Waiting on Wednesday (3/11/15): Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Expected publication: May 5, 2015

From Goodreads:
Peyton, Sydney's charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion's share of their parents' attention and—lately—concern. When Peyton's increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?
Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.

I've always loved me some Sarah Dessen. She may choose some heavy subject matter sometimes, but her quirky settings and characters make for an easy, enjoyable read. It feels like it's been forever since her last one! 

(Shout out to my North Carolina authors)
