Waiting on Wednesday (2)

We Should Hang Out Some Time by Josh Sundquist 
Release Date: December 23, 2014

Summary from Goodreads:

A bright, poignant, and deeply funny autobiographical account of coming of age as an amputee cancer survivor, from Josh Sundquist: Paralympic ski racer, YouTube star, and motivational speaker.

Josh Sundquist only ever had one girlfriend.
For twenty-three hours.
In eighth grade.

Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down the girls he had tried to date and asked them straight up: What went wrong?

The results of Josh's semiscientific, wholly hilarious investigation are captured here. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), to a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love--or at least a girlfriend--in all the wrong places.

Why I'm Excited:
I saw this while browsing the pre-orders on my nook and thought it sounded like a cute contemporary read. Not until I was putting this post together did I learn that it's an autobiography! This sounds like the perfect reading for winter break from school, which is when it's released. I'm usually not interested in non-fiction about relationships, but this one has definitely captured my interest it sounds like it's going to be really cute and really heartwarming. 

What are you waiting on?

  1. I'm not one for non-fiction usually, but this does sound intriguing.
