Waiting on Wednesday 5

Just Another Girl: A Novel
by Melody Carlson

Pub. Date: January 1, 2009


Aster Flynn is stuck. She has to spend all of her "free" time with her younger sister, Lily, who, though fifteen, is mentally handicapped. At age seventeen, Aster should be hanging out with friends, dating boys, and working at a fun job. But her dad's MIA, her mom is always at work, and her older sister Rose is too self-centered to give her any help. It's not that Aster doesn't love Lily--it's just that for once she'd like to be able to be a normal teenager.

So when a cute popular guy seems to take an interest in her, Aster hatches a plan. Somehow she has to get her workaholic mom and deadbeat dad to be the parents Lily needs so that Aster can have a life of her own. But can she ever get her parents to start acting like adults? Is this new guy worth the trouble? And, most importantly, will Lily get hurt in the process?

I think...
This book sounds so good! I can't wait for it! It's just about a girl who wants a normal life, which is like most girls. And also there is a boy involved, so it is potentially a love story as well. And Aster is such an interesting name. I looked it up and it means Star. Well, that's it. It just seems really interesting to me, and I'm for sure readin' it when it comes out.
