Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s basically a chance to highlight one of the many books you want to read but hasn’t yet been released.
My Waiting on Wednesday pick this week is…
He Said, She Said: A Novel by Kwame Alexander
Publisher: Amistad (imprint of Harper Collins)
Publication Date: November 19, 2013
He says: Omar T-Diddy Smalls has got it made: a full football ride to UMiami, hero-worship status at school, and pick of any girl at West Charleston High.
She says: Football, shmootball. Here’s what Claudia Clarke cares about: the hungry, the poor, the disenfranchised, Harvard, her GPA, Pat Conroy, the staggering teen pregnancy rate, investigative journalism…the list goes on. She does NOT have a minute to waste on Mr. T-Diddy Smalls and his harem of bimbos.
He Said, She Said is a fun and fresh novel from Kwame Alexander that throws these two high school seniors together when they unexpectedly end up leading the biggest social protest this side of the Mississippi—with a lot of help from Facebook and Twitter.
The stakes are high, the romance is hot, and when these worlds collide, behold the fireworks!
Snappy dialogue and social media feature prominently in a comedic spin on high school relationships that will appeal to fans of Walter Dean Myers and Rachel Vail alike!
How amazing does that sound? This one is already on my wishlist so I can buy it as soon as it comes out. It seems I’m on the hunt for different books these days!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
