Hi and Happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to share books we can't wait for!!
This week's pick is:
June 5, 2012
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.
I recently read Keplinger's Shut Out and absolutely loved it and I've been planning on reading The DUFF for awhile. But I know I'm going to have to pick this one up immediately! Whitley sounds like such a great character. I'm sure the romance will be just as fantastic as it has been in her other books. Plus, I'm loving the cover and the title! It's perfect!
