"Waiting on" Wednesday

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's selection is:

By: Kody Keplinger
Published By: Poppy
Release Date: June 5, 2012
Preorder the Book: Amazon

Goodreads Summary: Whitley Johnsons dream summer with her divorce dad has turned into a nightmare. She’s just met his new fiancee and her kids. The fiancee’s son? Whitley’s one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin’ great.

Worse, she totally doesn’t fit in with her dad’s perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn’t even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she’s ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn’t “do” friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn’t her stepbrother... at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger’s most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about.

Why it's wanted:

I loved Kody's first book, The DUFF, and this book sounds like it's in the same style - funny, touching, and honest.


  1. Looks really good! I loved The Duff. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I love contemporaries and this one sounds really good and interesting. I'm looking forward to this one. Great pick :)

  3. Oh yeah, this one's definitely on my list! I love spicy mysteries :))

    Here is my WOW

  4. I'll really need to read one of Kody's book sometime soon and maybe I'll start with this one. It definitely sounds quite awesome.

    Great pick!

  6. I haven't read The DUFF, but always meant to. This one sounds good and complicated. =) and the one night stand aspect... ugh, that would suck.

    Nice choice.

  7. I agree with that title, this does sound like a nightmare!!!

    Our WoW is at Book Sake. –Jessica
