Waiting On Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on The Reece Malcom List by Amy Spalding (2/12/13):

Description on GoodReads:
Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm: she's a bestselling, media-shy author, she lives in Los Angeles, and, oh yeah, she's Devan's mother. Each of these facts are short entries on the list Devan's been composing since her father died and she was shipped off to live with a woman she's never met.

While Devan tiptoes around getting to know her mother and settling into the home Reece shares with her boyfriend, she's at least thrilled to find a place for herself in a high school for the arts nearby. Joining show choir and getting a lead part in the fall musical are easy when you're as talented as Devan -- making friends and pining for fellow new-student Sai are more delicate mine-fields to maneuver.

As opening night draws near, Sai and Devan's friendship gets more complicated, and the Reece Malcolm list gets a shocking new entry. The problem with being so close to having it all is the pain of losing everything.
I actually only just learned of this book today while “wasting” some time on GoodReads. I fell in love with the cover. What’s not to love about a girl laying down outside, holding a book out? Also, I love that it involves musicals and a performing arts school. It just sounds like a good, fresh contemporary YA, and we can always use more of those!


  1. OK, so this doesn't have to do with the actual plot, but I just (well, not JUST) realized how much girls-with-boys'-names have been trending. As long as they're not, like, 'John,' most of them are pretty cute and creative.

    Don't totally like the font on the book (that says the title.) However, I also love books about performing arts schools! (and also, for whatever reason, I misspelled 'performing' three times before I got it right.) anyways...

  2. This looks like a really cute that I've seen people put up in the previous weeks. I'll have to take a look!

  3. I just read the blurb in its entirety, and I'm still not sure what this is actually about. Haha, but I am curious.
