Waiting on Wednesday (35) - Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski9:00 AM
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn’t jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although, maybe “opportunity” isn’t the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: “Lied to Our Parents”). But she and her housemate, Vi, are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up “Skipping School” (#3), “Throwing a Crazy Party” (#8), “Buying a Hot Tub” (#4), and, um, “Harboring a Fugitive” (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have) sounds like such a fun novel and I'm already thinking I'm going to love it based on the name and plot description alone! I'm sure we're in store for heartwarming and hilarious moments tossed in with some romance and a coming-of-age story. I can't wait!
Fans of Sarah Dessen, E. Lockhart, and Maureen Johnson will love this hilarious and bittersweet tale of a girl on her own for the first time. To get through the year, April will have to juggle a love triangle, learn to do her own laundry, and accept that her carefully constructed world just might be falling apart...one thing-she-shouldn’t-have-done at a time.
