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:
Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange
Expected Release Date: February 16, 2016
The Breakfast Club gets a modern, high-stakes reboot in this story of four very different teens and a night that changes them forever.
The Rebel: Once popular, Andi is now a dreadlocked, tattooed wild child.
The Bully: York torments everyone who crosses his path, especially his younger brother.
The Geek: Tired of being bullied, Boston is obsessed with getting into an Ivy League college.
The Pariah: Choosing to be invisible has always worked for Sam . . . until tonight.
When Andi, York, Boston, and Sam find themselves hiding in the woods after a party gets busted by the cops, they hop into the nearest car they see and take off—the first decision of many in a night that will change their lives forever. By the light of day, these four would never be caught dead together, but when their getaway takes a dangerously unpredictable turn, sticking together could be the only way to survive.

These novels that take place over the course of a single night can go a number of ways. They can be intensely plotted and super excellent, or completely boring and strain credulity. I’m hoping that this one is the former and has a lot to offer. The Breakfast Club is one of my favorite movies, and I’m interested to see a fresh take on the topic.
What are you waiting on this week?
