Waiting on Wednesday (35)



This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 

The List
By Siobhan Vivian
Release Date: April 1, 2012
Summary: An intense look at the rules of high school attraction—and the price that’s paid for them. 

It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn’t matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up. 

This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, “pretty” and “ugly.” And it’s also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.






Doesn't this sound awesome? And isn't the cover awesome? Everything about this books sounds soooooo good! It sounds like Gossip Girl where there's one person that can either make or break you in high school...and I'm really excited to see how the girls in the book deal with the list! The summary doesn't say anything about the protagonist, so I'm wondering if she's going to be the prettiest or the ugliest (I'm guess it's the latter based on the shock on the cover). I don't know, but I can't wait to find out! It comes out next week, so I guess I don't have to wait long!

  2. I haven't heard of this book but the story sounds definitely interesting. This was something that was covered in the news quite a bit not that long ago. Kids having these kinds of list on social media and such. It would be interesting to read it from the kids point of view.

  8. It does sound really good. You bring up a great point about not knowing who's perspective we will hear the story from, the pretty one or the ugly one. Would be kinda cool if it were dual narrative, though, too.

  10. I wasn't looking forward to this one after reading the summary for the first time, but I think I am now - something about this premise just latches on and makes you want to know WHY. Nice pick!

  14. The cover is really pretty! But I don't like that it's about 8 girls, so I guess no "real" main character...

  29. When I was in middle school (LONG, LONG ago) we had "slam books" where you essentially passed it around and answered the questions. Some were harmless(fave song, color, etc.) other questions, NOT so nice (who's the prettiest, ugliest, smelliest, etc.) It's terrible when I think about it now! I'm going to have to check this out, thanks for putting it on my radar:)
