Waiting on Wednesday (34)
Ashleigh's boyfriend, Kaleb, is about to leave for college, and Ashleigh is worried that he'll forget about her while he's away. So at a legendary end-of-summer pool party, Ashleigh's friends suggest she text him a picture of herself -- sans swimsuit -- to take with him. Before she can talk herself out of it, Ashleigh strides off to the bathroom, snaps a photo in the full-length mirror, and hits "send."
But when Kaleb and Ashleigh go through a bad breakup, Kaleb takes revenge by forwarding the text to his baseball team. Soon the photo has gone viral, attracting the attention of the school board, the local police, and the media. As her friends and family try to distance themselves from the scandal, Ashleigh feels completely alone -- until she meets Mack while serving her court-ordered community service. Not only does Mack offer a fresh chance at friendship, but he's the one person in town who received the text of Ashleigh's photo -- and didn't look.
Acclaimed author Jennifer Brown brings readers a gripping novel about honesty and betrayal, redemption and friendship, attraction and integrity, as Ashleigh finds that while a picture may be worth a thousand words . . . it doesn't always tell the whole story.
Expected publication date: May 21, 2013 by Little Brown Books for Young Readers
YOWZA! This one sounds awesome. I'm particularly interested in reading it because I work as a counselor in a high school and "sexting" has become SUCH a huge issue! Young girls don't seem to understand the possible ramifications from such an act. I think this book is BRILLIANT and if I like it, I'll be recommending it to a lot of the girls I work with.
What are YOU waiting for? Leave me a link and I'll check it out! *XOXO*
