Waiting on Wednesday - 83

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to learn about new books.
The Princesses of Iowa by M. Molly Backes

What does it mean to do wrong, when no one punishes you? A smart and unflinching look at friendship, the nature of entitlement, and growing up in the heartland.

Paige Sheridan has the perfect life. She's pretty, rich, and popular, and her spot on the homecoming court is practically guaranteed. But when a night of partying ends in an it-could-have-been-so-much worse crash, everything changes. Her best friends start ignoring her, her boyfriend grows cold and distant, and her once-adoring younger sister now views her with contempt. The only bright spot is
her creative writing class, led by a charismatic new teacher who encourages students to be true to themselves. But who is Paige, if not the homecoming princess everyone expects her to be? In this arresting and witty debut, a girl who was once high-school royalty must face a truth that money and status can't fix, and choose between living the privileged life of a princess, or owning up to her mistakes and giving up everything she once held dear.

I thought this sounded really interesting and it's a 2012 debut!!! Luckily for me, I was able to request to review this for Flamingnet, so hopefully I'll receive the book soon. The Princesses of Iowa will be released May 8.
