“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Scholastic, to be released April 2012
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.

Yes, I know it’s still months away, but…Siobhan rocked my socks off with Not That Kind of Girl, and I can’t wait to read what she’s got in store for us next. She’s proven that she’s stellar at tackling tough issues realistically but humorously, and this premise seems like it’ll suit her style perfectly.
