“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW pick is a 2013 debut, and SO my perfect book:

Author: Kari Luna
Publisher: Philomel
Expected publication date: July 11, 2013
Goodreads Synopsis: 
One part Libba Bray’s GOING BOVINE, two parts String Theory, and three parts love story equals a whimsical novel that will change the way you think about the world.

Sophie Sophia is obsessed with music from the late eighties. She also has an eccentric physicist father who sometimes vanishes for days and sees things other people don’t see. But when he disappears for good and Sophie’s mom moves them from Brooklyn, New York, to Havencrest, Illinois, for a fresh start, things take a turn for the weird. Sophie starts seeing things, like marching band pandas, just like her dad.

Guided by Walt, her shaman panda, and her new (human) friend named Finny, Sophie is determined to find her father and figure out her visions, once and for all. So she travels back to where it began—New York City and NYU’s physics department. As she discovers more about her dad’s research on M-theory and her father himself, Sophie opens her eyes to the world’s infinite possibilities—and her heart to love.

Perfect for fans of Going Bovine, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and The Probability of Miracles.

STRING THEORY? And a contemp love story? With the cutest, weirdest cover ever? I’m sold. I saw this on someone else’s WoW a few weeks ago, and I wholeheartedly thank him/her for introducing me to this book. *grabby hands* CANNOT WAIT for this book. 

What are you waiting for this week? Have you heard about THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING? Are you as crazy excited as I am for this book?

  1. Yeah, I cannot say that this one is one that I would like. Maybe I would, but it seems a little out there. And I LIKE out there. Usually. But I think the Panda thing threw me. I am not sure what to say. Maybe I will give it a shot.
