Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Accidentals - Sarina Bowen

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait for The Accidentals!

The Accidentals
Sarina Bowen

Release Date: July 10, 2018
Publisher: Tuxbury Publishing LLC
Waited on by: Sam
Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost. Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul. There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.
I was beyond excited, when I saw that Sarina Bowen was releasing a YA book. I have been a long time fan of her NA and adult contemporary romances, many of which sit on my favorites shelf.

Bowen has a talent for crafting incredible characters, who I always grow attached to. Many of them are slightly damaged and all of them are complicated, and there is so much beauty in their complexities.

I love the set up for this book. We have the grief and loss that I love so much, but also the never-met-daddy, which always delivers some great drama. It sounds like we will get a messy romance and some interesting family secrets as well.

I am so eager to read this, that I have already pre-ordered it, as there is no doubt in my mind that I will enjoy this book.

  8. I tend to like books with music or with popular musicians as the main or side character, so this sounds like something I'd enjoy too. I hope you love it!
