Waiting on Wednesday: Faithful by Janet Fox

Faithful by Janet Fox (Published by Penguin Books, May 13, 2010)

Sixteen-year-old Maggie Bennet’s life is in tatters. Her mother has disappeared, and is presumed dead. The next thing she knows, her father has dragged Maggie away from their elegant Newport home, off on some mad excursion to Yellowstone in Montana. Torn from the only life she’s ever known, away from her friends, from society, and verging on no prospects, Maggie is furious and devastated by her father’s betrayal. But when she arrives, she finds herself drawn to the frustratingly stubborn, handsome Tom Rowland, the son of a park geologist, and to the wild romantic beauty of Yellowstone itself. And as Tom and the promise of freedom capture Maggie’s heart, Maggie is forced to choose between who she is and who she wants to be.

There have been so many great new historical fiction books for young adults, as well as many upcoming in 2010. This is one of the ones I particularly want to read. It sounds like it has an interesting and unusual historical setting and a great romance too! I really wish this book was coming out sooner than May. And I love the cover too!
