Waiting on Wednesday: A Short History Of The Girl Next Door by Jared Reck

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where we highlight some of the upcoming books we can't wait to read!

Jessica's Waiting on:

Title: A Short History Of The Girl Next Door
Author: Jared Reck
Publisher: Knopf Books 
Publication Date: September 26th, 2017



Summary: Fifteen-year-old Matt Wainwright is in turmoil. He can’t tell his lifelong best friend, Tabby, how he really feels about her; his promising basketball skills are being overshadowed by his attitude on the court, and the only place he feels normal is in English class, where he can express his inner thoughts in quirky poems and essays. Matt is desperately hoping that Tabby will reciprocate his feelings; but then Tabby starts dating Liam Branson, senior basketball star and all-around great guy. Losing Tabby to Branson is bad enough; but, as Matt soon discovers, he’s close to losing everything that matters most to him. 

I received an advanced copy of this book at BookCon this past June, and I'm so excited to be starting it soon! The summary makes the book seem super interesting, and the way it leaves things off on a cliffhanger (especially when it comes to teenage true love) makes it all the more intriguing. I'm looking forward to finally getting around to reading this one and seeing where Matt's story takes him!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links so I can stop back!
