Waiting on Wednesday: How My Summer Went Up In Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.


I’ll admit that How My Summer Went Up in Flames sounds kind of predictable, but it still sounds like a fun read.  I’m not sure how someone unintentionally sets a car on fire, but I’m interested to find out!  Road trip books almost always lure me in, so Jennifer Salvato Doktorski has that going for book as well.

How My Summer Went Up In FlamesTitle & Author: How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Release Date: May 7th, 2013

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Summary (From Goodreads): Rosie’s always been impulsive. She didn’t intend to set her cheating ex-boyfriend’s car on fire. And she never thought her attempts to make amends could be considered stalking. So when she’s served with a temporary restraining order on the first day of summer vacation, she’s heartbroken—and furious.

To put distance between Rosie and her ex, Rosie’s parents send her on a cross-country road trip with responsible, reliable neighbor Matty and his two friends. Forget freedom of the road, Rosie just wants to hitchhike home and win back her ex. But with every mile marker that passes, Rosie discovers a new sense of self…and that sometimes the best revenge is moving on.



  1. I’m a sucker done for road trip books, too! I think this one will be a great story about accepting yourself and putting yourself first (before a dirty ex ;))

  2. Sounds like it will be really good. Nice pick.
