"Waiting On" Wednesday #29


“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release (or releases) that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My picks this week:

Being Friends with Boys
By: Terra Elan McVoy
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: May 1, 2012

Description:

Charlotte and Oliver have been friends forever. She knows that he, Abe, and Trip consider her to be one of the guys, and she likes it that way. She likes being the friend who keeps them all together. Likes offering a girl’s perspective on their love lives. Likes being the behind-the-scenes wordsmith who writes all the lyrics for the boys’ band. Char has a house full of stepsisters and a past full of backstabbing (female) ex-best friends, so for her, being friends with boys is refreshingly drama-free… until it isn’t any more.

When a new boy enters the scene and makes Char feel like, well, a total girl… and two of her other friends have a falling out that may or may not be related to one of them deciding he possibly wants to be more than friends with Char… being friends with all these boys suddenly becomes a lot more complicated.

Why I’m Waiting: I love love LOVE stories about strong male-female friendships, especially ones where a girl is mostly friends with guys, so this one sounds perfect. I’m also really excited about the fact that they’re in a band. Although I can say from experience that being friends with boys is most definitely NOT drama-free, haha.


Auracle
By: Gina Rosati
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Release Date: August 7, 2012

Description:

On the surface, there’s nothing remarkable about Anna Rogan: she gets average grades, she’s not especially fashionable, she spends most of her time just hanging out with her best friend Rei. But Anna does have a remarkable secret: she has the ability to do astral projection. She uses her out-of-body experiences to explore the universe, until one day when there’s an accident at school and her classmate Taylor gets into her body. Now Taylor’s using her new identity to accuse an innocent boy of murder and she shows no signs of leaving Anna’s body. The only person who knows Anna’s secret is Rei, and as her feelings for Rei grow she must face a future where they can never touch… unless they can find a way to get Taylor out of Anna’s body, stop the murder trial, and discover the true nature of Anna’s power.

Why I’m Waiting: Astral projection! Body snatching! Falling in love with someone you can’t touch! This book sounds so cool. I am curious about what exactly has happened to Anna. Is she in her body along with Taylor? Is she in Taylor’s body? Is her consciousness just floating around somewhere? Regardless, I absolutely can’t wait to read this one. Oh, and the cover is soooo gorgeous. Love it.
