“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
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?
