Waiting on Wednesday: The Associate

Waiting on Wednesday is a way to showcase books that are not yet released but I am excited to see they are coming out. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Later this month, John Grisham is coming out with a new book! It's called The Associate. I have thoroughly LOVED all of John Grisham's books and I am sure this one will be just a good. I need to get moved so I can get the library card at the new place - need to put this on hold!

Summary (from Amazon): Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father’s small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential.

But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn’t want—even though it’s a job most law students can only dream about.

Three months after leaving Yale, Kyle becomes an associate at the largest law firm in the world, where, in addition to practicing law, he is expected to lie, steal, and take part in a scheme that could send him to prison, if not get him killed.

With an unforgettable cast of characters and villains—from Baxter Tate, a drug-addled trust fund kid and possible rapist, to Dale, a pretty but seemingly quiet former math teacher who shares Kyle’s “cubicle” at the law firm, to two of the most powerful and fiercely competitive defense contractors in the country—and featuring all the twists and turns that have made John Grisham the most popular storyteller in the world, THE ASSOCIATE is vintage Grisham.

Hi Michele with one L,
I just found your blog because I am starting my own blog soon and trying to figure out what to call it. I just thought of "Michele with one L"......and looked to see what I could Google. And then I found you. I love to read too. My best book of 2008 is "The Glass Castle" (I am usually a couple years behind in the new stuff).
Good luck with your move.

(still trying to figure out what to call my blog that I want to start...)

I've never read Grisham but I know his stories make for good movies so they must be good. Happy reading. My Wow is up here:
