Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jilly at Breaking The Spine.   It features each blogger's most anticipated books.  This week, my pick is Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein.  

Summary: Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she's somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association.  But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands-earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx-Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating "rehabilitation techniques" now filling up her summer.  Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing-like she is nothing.

Navigating unlikely alliances with her new co-workers, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it's worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy.  Bring readers along on an often hilarious and heart-warming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.  

Why I Can't Wait:  As I was drifting through reviews on Goodreads, I started picking up on key words that I look for in contemporary novels.  Gritty.  Raw.  I love those words.  Ok other than the incredible reviews for the book, I think that the idea of a girl sitting in a jail cell in a prom dress is an awesome image.  I'm seeing it right now.  I can't wait to dig into this book, possibly be reminded of high school, and figure out just who this Amy is.  The cover is just so pretty too.  I can't help it.  I love covers.  I'm so excited about this debut from Lisa Burstein.
