Waiting On Wednesday (129)

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

By Sarah Ockler
Release Date: June 17, 2014
Summary: Lucy’s learned some important lessons from tabloid darling Jayla Heart’s all-too-public blunders: Avoid the spotlight, don’t feed the Internet trolls, and keep your secrets secret. The policy has served Lucy well all through high school, so when her best friend Ellie gets sick before prom and begs her to step in as Cole’s date, she accepts with a smile, silencing about ten different reservations. Like the one where she’d rather stay home shredding online zombies. And the one where she hates playing dress-up. And especially the one where she’s been secretly in love with Cole since the dawn of time.

When Cole surprises her at the after party with a kiss under the stars, it’s everything Lucy has ever dreamed of… and the biggest BFF deal-breaker ever. Despite Cole’s lingering sweetness, Lucy knows they’ll have to ’fess up to Ellie. But before they get the chance, Lucy’s own Facebook profile mysteriously explodes with compromising pics of her and Cole, along with tons of other students’ party indiscretions. Tagged. Liked. And furiously viral.

By Monday morning, Lucy’s been branded a slut, a backstabber, and a narc, mired in a tabloid-worthy scandal just weeks before graduation. 

Lucy’s been battling undead masses online long enough to know there’s only one way to survive a disaster of this magnitude: Stand up and fight. Game plan? Uncover and expose the Facebook hacker, win back her best friend’s trust, and graduate with a clean slate.

There’s just one snag—Cole. Turns out Lucy’s not the only one who’s been harboring unrequited love


While I wasn't a big fan of Sarah's last release The Book of Broken Hearts, I absolutely LOVED Bittersweet. So when I saw she had a new book coming out, I instantly put it on my TBR list. In this one, it sounds like social media is playing against our main character, and she has to figure out how to survive high school with so many secrets and scandals out there on the web. It sounds like it's got a taste of Gossip Girl in it, and I can't wait to see who it turns out!

  5. Sarah Ockler keeps getting recommended to me. I guess I need to read something by her! It is interesting to me to read books about social media. I'm old enough (ancient lol) we didn't even have internet in high school and the difference in what kids have to deal with because of social media today is just crazy!

    Thanks for the awesome recommendation!
