Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

My choice this week is...

It's Our Prom (So Deal With It) by Julie Anne Peters!


When Azure's principal gives her the chance to turn the school's traditional (and boring) senior prom into an event that will appeal to everyone, not just the jocks and cheerleaders, she jumps at the opportunity. Soon Azure manages to convince her best friends, Luke and Radhika, to join the prom committee as well.

Facing heavy opposition and admittedly clueless about prom logistics, the three friends are nonetheless determined to succeed -- if Luke's and Azure's secret crushes on Radhika don't push the committee members, and their friendships, to the breaking point first.

Told in two voices and filled with comical missed connections, It's Our Prom (So Deal With It) explores the ups and downs of planning an alternative prom -- while dealing with an unrequited crush on your best friend -- and shines with National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters's unmistakable wit and insight. (summary from Goodreads)

I've read a couple of other titles by Peters and really enjoyed them. She creates very real and emotional characters and situations that really hit me. This one sounds like it might be the same with a little fun thrown in!

It's Our Prom (So Deal With It) by Julie Anne Peters is to be released 24 April 2012.

What book are you looking forward to this week?

  1. I have been needing some good realistic fiction and this fits the bill! Looks to be fun with two POVs.

    1. Oh, that book is amazing! Threw me for a loop! Hope you enjoy it...as it were. It's one of those hard ones to define that way!
