"Waiting On" Wednesday #36

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that we’re eagerly anticipating. Let the salivating commence.

My pick this week:

The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life
By: Tara Altebrando
Publisher: Penguin Group
Release Date: July 5, 2012

Description:

An all-day scavenger hunt in the name of eternal small-town glory…

With only a week until graduation, there’s one last thing Mary and her friends must do together: participate in the Oyster Point High Official Unofficial Senior Week Scavenger Hunt. And Mary is determined to win.

Mary lost her spot at Georgetown to self-professed “it” bully Pete Lembo and she’s not about to lose again. But everyone is racing for the finish line with complicated motives, and the team’s all-night adventure becomes all-night drama as shifting alliances, flared tempers, and crushing crushes take over. As the items and points pile up, Mary and her team must reinvent their strategy – and themselves – in order to win.

Why I’m Waiting: Haha, this sounds awesome! I’m a big fan of the all-night adventure stories (Graffiti Moon, One Night That Changes Everything), and I’m also a huge fan of scavenger hunts, so this sounds perfect. And I love the cover! The silhouettes, the striking color against the black...  So cool.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  5. Maybe it's because English is not my first language.. But just to make sure that I understand it right: What are Night Adventure-Stories? *apologetic smile*

    Anyway, this sounds really cool!

    Happy Wednesday. : )
