Waiting on Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is The Thing About The Truth by Lauren Barnholdt.
Summary: "Sixteen-year-old Kelsey Romano has always been one of the most popular girls at Concordia Prep. But after a disastrous breakup and her subsequent meltdown (um, destruction of school property, anyone?) she's kicked out of Con Prep and shipped off to Concordia High School, for good.
Seventeen-year-old Isaac Brandano has been kicked out of more prep schools than he can name. But now that his father's State Senate campaign is pushing a public school agenda, Isaac finds himself enrolled at Concordia High.
Kelsey and Isaac are destined to hate each other. And at first, they do. But when they are forced together on the creation of a new school club, sparks begin to fly. Then the club's critical event turns into chaos. Now Kelsey and Isaac must retrace their steps and figure out how and why everything got so got screwed up, who was to blame, and how they can move forward.
This new novel from fan-favorite Lauren Barnholdt showcases--through a sweet and sparkly narrative--how the last person you expect might just be the one who changes your life forever."
Why I Can't Wait: HUGE Lauren Barnholdt fan here. I absolutely loved Aces Up and Sometimes It Happens, so needless to say, I cannot freaking wait for her next book. I'm loving the summary. If you know me, you know I love a good love-hate relationship! The only thing I'm not so sure about is the cover. While it's nice, the girl looks...bored? Annoyed? Maybe this has something to do with the story, so I guess we shall all wait and see!
Expected publication: July 10th 2012 by Simon Pulse
