Waiting on Wednesday - 55

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to get excited about upcoming books.

52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody

What's a girl gotta do to earn her dad's trust (fund)?

Seventeen year-old Lexington Larrabee, heiress to the billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire, is beautiful, famous, spoiled, and has never had to work a day in her life. But all of that changes on her eighteenth birthday when her ever-absent, mogul father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage, character-building job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast food restaurant employee, it’s the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.

Jessica Brody once again skillfully captures the humor and complexity of being a teen. Readers of all ages are sure to fall in love with this delightful riches to rags comedy. (from GoodReads)


I really enjoyed Jessica Brody's debut novel, The Karma Club, so I'm definitely excited to read this. I think the book sounds like it will have a good message. Unfortunately, we have to wait until July 2012 (!) for the release.
