This week, the book I am waiting for has a little bit of everything that I like:
1.) It’s a standalone.
2.) It was written by a debut author
3.) It has a pretty FAB cover that I can’t wait to add to my shelves.
4.) It looks like it *may* be set in my hometown: Washington, D.C. (at least, it appears to be that way from the cover, lol)
5.) The synopsis says: “equal parts My Life Next Door and The Princess Diaries”.
Book: The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Expected Publication Date: March 17th, 2015 (St. PADDY’s DAY!)
Publisher: Dial (Penguin)
Fans of Sarah Dessen and Huntley Fitzpatrick will enjoy this smart debut young adult novel, equal parts My Life Next Door and The Princess Diaries.
Kate Quinn’s mom died unexpectedly last year, leaving Kate grasping. But when the totally unexpected shows up in her living room, Kate must confront another reality she never thought possible—or thought of at all. Moving in with a politically powerful family she never knew she had, joining a presidential campaign in support of a man she barely knows, and falling for a rebellious boy who may not have the purest motives—this is Kate’s new life. But who is Kate? When what she truly believes flies in the face of the campaign’s talking points, Kate must decide. Does she turn to the family she barely knows, the boy she knows but doesn’t necessarily trust, or face a third, even scarier option?
Set against a backdrop of politics and family conflict, this is a story of personal responsibility, delicious, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.
I want it now!
But alas, I must wait.
Add this to your TBR while you wait!
What are you waiting on this week?
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.
