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 Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler.

"Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother -- whose name her dad won't even say out loud. That's why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her...and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she's everything Emma is not.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It's more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...

This explosive, sexy, and harrowing follow-up to Ann Redisch Stampler's spectacular teen debut, Where It Began, reveals how those who know us best can hurt us most."


Why I Can't Wait: Y'all, the contemp fan in me is definitely intrigued. When I read WHERE IT BEGAN, I fell in love with the author's writing but hated the characters. Stampler can undeniably draw some strong emotions out of you! I love the whole good girl gone bad spin. Plus, a destructive friend and a boy who may or may not come between them? Yeah, I'm going to need to read this as soon as it hits the shelves.

Expected publication: January 7th 2014 by Simon Pulse

  4. I had similar feelings about Where It Began-I hope the characters will appeal to us more in this book as that tends to be important to me in books.
