Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It highlights and features the most anticipated books. For my WoW this week, I picked The Lucky Kind by Alyssa Sheinmel.

Synopsis: High school junior Nick Brandt is intent on getting a girlfriend, and Eden Reiss is the one that he wants. He has exactly four semesters to get the girl, but when the phone rings on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday night, life for Nick and his parents will never be the same. What had been a seemingly idyllic home life has become something else entirely. But with this shake-up comes a newfound confidence for Nick; he's become a bolder version of himself, no longer afraid to question his parents, and no longer afraid to talk to Eden.
Alyssa B. Sheinmel has written a powerfully gripping story about family secrets, falling in love, and finding luck in unexpected--and sometimes unwelcome—circumstances.

Why I Can't Wait: First off, I love the cover. Secondly, this just sounds like a great read. A bit romance, a bit mystery, what more is there to ask? While I've learned in the past that some synopsis can be misgiving, I don't see how this can be the case. Lastly, it sounds like this is written through Nick's POV, and I love me a male's POV.

Release Date: May 10, 2011
