Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Robin Palmer
Expected Release Date: July 2, 2013
Gilmore Girls meets Postcards from the Edge crossed with L.A. Candy!
Sixteen-year-old Annabelle Jacobs never asked to be famous, but as the daughter of Janie Jacobs, one of the biggest TV stars in the world, she is. Growing up is hard enough. Having to do it in public because your mother is a famous actress? Even harder. When your mom crashes and burns after her DUI mug shot is splashed across the internet? Definitely not fun. Then your mom falls for a guy so much younger than she that it would be more appropriate for you to be dating him? That’s just a train wreck waiting to happen.
(summary via Goodreads)
In all honesty, comparing this book to LA Candy almost put me off it entirely. But I love Gilmore Girls and Postcards from the Edge (though I’m not sure who that last part is for–what readership are they going for here?) enough to give that one a pass. In all honesty, if this one does the mother-daughter relationship well enough, I’m willing to overlook a lot of stuff.
Either way, it looks to be a fun, Hollywood focused family drama for contemporary YA fans.
What are you waiting on this week?
