Waiting on Wednesday: Shrinking Violet

Hola! :) This is my
first "Waiting On Wednesday" meme that I've seen some sites do, and really enjoy reading their posts from it. Breaking the Spine was the creator of this fantastic idea to get readers pumped for upcoming books! For those of you who don't know what it is, it's simple: Each Wednesday, I'll blog about a book that will be published within a month (or two) and that I really want to read. Hopefully, you will too.

Soooo, today's pick is Shrinking Violet, by Danielle Joseph! It will be released on May 5, 2009, which is just a week away. Here is the summary of the book from Amazon: "High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare.... "

I really want to read this YA book because I think I'd be able to relate to Teresa pretty well, since I'm the same way. I'm also a sucker when it comes to realistic fiction in a teen girl's perspective. I'm so excited for this book to come out, mark your calendars! RELEASED ON MAY 5, 2009.


Thanks, I love what you have to say!
