Wishing For Someday Soon by Tiffany King
Amazon / Goodreads
Wishing For Someday Soon by Tiffany King is about seventeen year old Katelyn survival with an abusive mother and a long list of deadbeat stepfathers. The only thing that keeps her going is protecting her nine year old brother, Kevin. Her goal in life is to finally give Kevin and herself the future that they both deserve.
I absolutely LOVED this book. This was such an emotional read and I couldn't put it down. Tiffany King really has a way of drawing you into Katelyns' life. Wishing For Someday Soon was so extremely well written and and the characters were realistic. This is not my first book Ive read from Tiffany King and it certainly wont be the last. She is an excellent writer! Wishing For Someday soon needs to be read, not just by every young adult reader- but adults as well.
5 OUT OF 5 STARS and has made it to my top all times favorites!

"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."
