Waiting on Wednesday - 72

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

A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger

Whitley Johnson's 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. (from GoodReads)


I absolutely loved The Duff (haven't read Shut Out yet) so I know I'm going to enjoy this one! Plus I'm always interested in stories about step-families - they always have so much drama! A Midsummer's Nightmare will be released June 5, 2012.

I have The DUFF, though I haven't read it yet and Shut Out sounds awesome! This one sounds just as amazing and I can't wait to read it :)

Great pick!!

Hm. Like you, we loved the DUFF but haven't read Shut Out... Not sure this one sounds like our cup of tea. (And we hate the cover.) BUT Kody is a really talented writer, so we'll probably check it out.
