Friday Finds

TGIF!!!!! And its a beautiful, sunny Friday as well.

This week's  installment of Friday Finds is dedicated to a great book that i found over at Librarything. I entered to win it and am really really hoping i do. Its called Finny - A novel by Justin Kramon.


Here's what amazon had to say about the book:

We meet Finny Short as an observant, defiant fourteen-year-old who can’t make sense of her family’s unusual habits: Her mother offers guidance appropriate for a forty-year-old socialite; her father quotes Nietzsche over pancakes. Finny figures she’s stuck with this lonely lot until she meets Earl Henckel, a boy who comes from an even stranger place than she does. Unhappy with Finny’s budding romance with Earl, her parents ship her off to Thorndon boarding school. But mischief follows Finny as she befriends New York heiress Judith Turngate, a girl whose charm belies a disquieting reckless streak.

Finny’s relationships with Earl and Judith open her up to dizzying possibilities of love and loss and propel her into a remarkable adventure spanning twenty years and two continents. Justin Kramon has given us a wickedly funny odyssey with a moving and original love story at its core. Finny introduces us to an unforgettable heroine, a charmingly intricate world, and an uncommonly entertaining and gifted young novelist
.

Sounds good doesn't it. As of lately am becoming a real sucker for coming-of-age novels.

The book is set to be released on July 13th however you can pre-order a copy on Amazon.com.  Am looking forward to reading this book and if you are already reading it on behalf of ARC, please message me.  I would love to get your first reactions.
