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.
My Thoughts ❤
Last night and today I took a break from my own writing, No Turning Back, to read a book I’ve had on my Kindle for FOREVER! I have 6 or more reviews to do, but I just needed a Tiffany King fix… So Wishing for Someday Soon…has been opened and read in less than 24 hours.
Wishing for Someday soon is about praying for a better life than the cards that life deals you. Someday soon life will be better.
Katelyn and her brother, Kevin have moved in and out of shelters, low income housing, lived out of a car and now a dumpy old trailer in a little bitty town. Their mom, Lucinda is a piece of work. She never pays bills, expects a hand out, and moves from man to man. It is beyond amazing how a woman like that can have two amazing kids!
Katelyn has always guarded herself from anyone and anything that might cause her as much heartache. Does Max really care for her or see her as an easy target? What happens when Katelyn is overwhelmed by people that care? Will she have to move again? Will her and Kevin find their someday soon? What happens when a community is for them instead of against them? This are exactly the thoughts I had while I was reading.
The characters in this story are strong both in feeling connected to them as we’ll as mentally/physically. I loved Max and his family and their ability to take chances… Max is your all american guy that is more than any parent could ever wish for their daughter. Old Man Wither is a man that stole my <3. His kindness and willingness to help others helps to believe that there are still people like this in the world we now live in that looks out for #1.
This book was amazing and I loved the Harry Potter references! It just made it even more real!… Even though I know Tiffany King is like the Biggest Harry Potter fan ever! If you are looking for a young adult book that will have you wanting to kick a no good mama's tail, crying for girl and her brother that live a life that too many children in the country endure day in and out, and a love of a community that makes you feel like events just a reader you belong… Wishing for Someday Soon is it!
