Waiting on Wednesday: See What I See - Gloria Whelan

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and is a post detailing an upcoming book you can't wait to read.

This week I've chosen ‘See What I See' by Gloria Whelan. It sounds really intriguing - I've never read anything like it so I'm really hoping it's as good as it sounds! I haven't actually read anything by the author before but I've heard lots of wonderful things about her. Roll on January 1st!

Publication date: January 1st 2011

Published by: HarperTeen

Summary (from Goodreads): Kate Tapert sees her life in paintings. Yet one place she never sees her life is in the work of the famous and reclusive artist Dalton Quinn—her father, whom she hasn’t seen or heard from in nearly ten years. Now Kate has an art dream of her own, and a scholarship to art school to help make it a reality.

The last piece to the puzzle is staying with her father, which means it’s time for Kate to work her way into Dalton’s life, into his mind, and into his heart, whether he likes it or not.
See What I See is a powerful family story filled with uneasy relationships, deep secrets, reluctant togetherness, and an examination of the unbreakable bond between father and daughter.

Celebrated National Book Award–winning author Gloria Whelan delivers her most modern story yet, with all the beauty, emotion, and timeless themes that she is known for.


So what about you guys? What are your picks for this week?

  1. I've got a stack of TBR that'll have to wait until workers finish renovating a bathroom. But it's gonna be worth it (she tells herself).

    Daniel Silva also uses art as a backdrop (but for mysteries). Thanks for your recommendation. Sounds good!
