Bookish Memes Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday – January 26, 2022

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you spotlight a highly anticipated book.

It’s my first Waiting On Wednesday post of the new year! Hooray! It’s been many months since my last one, so this is long overdue. This Wednesday I’m spotlighting Falling Short by Ernesto Cisneros.

I discovered this book one day long ago while browsing NetGalley. I’m always on the lookout for new MG reads and this one really captured my attention. The idea of the story is interesting and realistic. I like that the two main characters in a way compliment each other in who they are and what they want most. Already, I’m rooting for them to succeed. I think the story will be entertaining and heartfelt.

Falling Short releases March 15, 2022.

ABOUT: Isaac and Marco already know sixth grade is going to change their lives. But it won’t change things at home–not without each other’s help.

This year, star basketball player Isaac plans on finally keeping up with his schoolwork. Better grades will surely stop Isaac’s parents from arguing all the time. Meanwhile, straight-A Marco vows on finally winning his father’s approval by earning a spot on the school’s basketball team.

But will their friendship and support for each other be enough to keep the two boys from falling short?
