“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:
Smart Girls Get What They Want
By: Sarah Strohmeyer
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: June 26, 2012
Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are best friends and total overachievers. Even if they aren’t the most popular girls in school, they aren’t too worried. They know their real lives will begin once they get to their Ivy League colleges. There will be ivy, and there will be cute guys in the library (hopefully with English accents)! But when an unexpected event shows them they’re missing out on the full high school experience, it’s time to come out of the honors lounge and into the spotlight. They make a pact: They will each take on their greatest challenge – and they will totally rock it.
Gig decides to run for student rep, but she’ll have to get over her fear of public speaking – and go head-to-head with gorgeous California Will. Bea used to be one of the best skiers around, until she was derailed. It could be time for her to take the plunge again. And Neerja loves the drama club but always stayed behind the scenes – until now.
These friends are determined to show that smart girls get what they want – but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for…
Why I’m Waiting: I was totally one of these smart girls in high school (and definitely expected to meet a cute guy with an English accent in the library at college, haha!), and I’m so excited for this book. It sounds so fun and entertaining and yay for the smart girls!!
