Waiting on Wednesday (49)

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

Pizza, Love and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous
By Kathryn Williams
Release Date: August 21, 2012
Summary: Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance?

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to convince her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America's finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame. 

Once on-set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering--fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.

Haha, the title caught me and I knew I had to read this book once I heard it! I love books that have to do with food (well, basically I love food in general...) so this one sounded really fun with the whole Italian-Greek restaurant thing going on. Then, the very last line of the summary had me anticipating the release of this book even more! A sprinkle of romance? Need you say more?? So with a mixture of food and romance, I really can't wait to get my hands on this book and see what the story has in store! It sounds like the kind of fun, light YA books I love and hopefully it can live up to those expectations!
