"Waiting On" Wednesdays (Oct. 26): Pink Hearts

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill's Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're waiting to get our greedy little hands on.

This week we have:

Don't You Wish
By Roxanne St. Claire
Expected Pub: July 10, 2012

From GR:

What if your mom had married someone else? Would you still be you? 

When plain and unpopular Annie Nutter gets zapped by one of her dad's whacked-out inventions, she lands in a parallel universe where her life becomes picture perfect. Now she's Ayla Monroe, daughter of the same mother but a different father—and she's the gorgeous, rich queen bee of her high school. 

In this universe, Ayla lives in glitzy Miami instead of dreary Pittsburgh and has beaucoup bucks, courtesy of her billionaire—if usually absent—father. Her friends hit the clubs, party backstage at concerts, and take risks that are exhilirating . . . and illegal. Here she's got a date to lose her V-card with the hottest guy she's ever seen. 

But on the insde, Ayla is still Annie. 

So when she's offered the chance to leave the dream life and head home to Pittsburgh, will she take it? 

The choice isn't as simple as you think.


The Boy on Cinnamon Street
By Phoebe Stone
Expected Pub: February 28, 2012

From GR:

A story about a wounded girl and the boy who won't give up on her.

7th grader Louise should be the captain of her school's gymnastics team - but she isn't. She's fun and cute and should have lots of friends - but she doesn't. And there's a dreamy boy who has a crush on her - but somehow they never connect. Louise has everything going for her - so what is it that's holding her back?

Phoebe Stone tells the winning story of the spring when 7th grader Louise Terrace wakes up, finds the courage to confront the painful family secret she's hiding from - and finally get the boy.

These sound awesome right? Parallel universe? Yes, please. Cute puppy love? Bring it on. 2012 seems like a good year for books! :)
