Title: Wishing For Someday Soon Author: Tiffany King
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars
Seventeen year old Katelyn Richards is a stronger person than anyone will ever know, and that is just the way she wants it. Behind her normal facade lies the reality of a broken home life. Thanks to her abusive mother, a string of deadbeat stepfathers, and an unsympathetic system, Katelyn has learned that the only one she can count on is herself. Her life’s mission has become to shield her nine year old brother, Kevin, and to give him the future that they both wish for. A life with no more abuse, no worries about where their next meal will come from, and no more wondering if they will have a roof over their heads. When her mother moves them again, this time to a small town in Montana, Katelyn’s resolve is shaken when she meets Max, a cute boy from her new school, who gets a glimpse into her real world. Max slowly manages to break through Katelyn’s wall of distrust, stirring up feelings she never saw coming. Now with her world more complicated than she ever intended, Katelyn struggles with the decision to follow her heart into the arms of the first boy she has ever loved. A decision that could risk the promise she made to protect Kevin, and to give them the ‘someday soon’ that is so close within their grasp.
Wishing For Someday Soon is a very good book about a teenage girl, and little boy who have an abusive home life. This book shows you how Katelyn takes care of her younger brother, and keeps her mother from hurting him by taking all of the "hits" herself. They move to a small town where it isn't so easy to hide all of the things about their home life. And they find people who actually start to care for them and want to be with them. And Katelyn finds a wonderful boy who wants to take care of her, and help her and her brother get away from the abuse. This book was good, even though it felt somewhat short, it was still good, but it wasn't a great book.
