Shine Shine Shine by Lydia Netzer

Book description (from Amazon):

When Maxon met Sunny, he was seven years, four months, and eighteen-days old. Or, he was 2693 rotations of the earth old. Maxon was different. Sunny was different. They were different together.

Now, twenty years later, they are married, and Sunny wants, more than anything, to be “normal.” She’s got the housewife thing down perfectly, but Maxon, a genius engineer, is on a NASA mission to the moon, programming robots for a new colony. Once they were two outcasts who found unlikely love in each other: a wondrous, strange relationship formed from urgent desire for connection. But now they’re parents to an autistic son. And Sunny is pregnant again. And her mother is dying in the hospital. Their marriage is on the brink of imploding, and they’re at each other’s throats with blame and fear. What exactly has gone wrong?

Sunny wishes Maxon would turn the rocket around and come straight-the-hell home.

When an accident in space puts the mission in peril, everything Sunny and Maxon have built hangs in the balance. Dark secrets, long-forgotten murders, and a blond wig all come tumbling to the light. And nothing will ever be the same.…

A debut of singular power and intelligence, Shine Shine Shine is a unique love story, an adventure between worlds, and a stunning novel of love, death, and what it means to be human.

I’ve seen this book being talked about on several different blogs, but I didn’t really pay much attention until I read on Joshilyn Jackson’s blog* that she actually narrates the audiobook, and then I knew that I had to have it!  Jackson is one of my favorite writers and I love her audiobooks which she narrates herself, so I can’t wait to hear what she does with someone else’s novel.  Has anyone read or, even better, listened to this one yet?

What’s on your wishlist this week?

*Updated: Jackson is hosting a contest and you can win the audiobook, so if you’re interested you should head over and check it out!
