Waiting on Wednesday #10

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on!


Title: A Midsummer's Nightmare
Author: Kody Keplinger
Release Date: June 5th, 2012
Publisher: Poppy


Whitley Johnson's dream summer with her divorce dad has turned into a nightmare. She's just met his new fiancee and her kids. The fiancee's son? Whitley's one-night stand from graduation night. Just freakin' great.

Worse, she totally doesn't fit in with her dad's perfect new country-club family. So Whitley acts out. She parties. Hard. So hard she doesn't even notice the good things right under her nose: a sweet little future stepsister who is just about the only person she's ever liked, a best friend (even though Whitley swears she doesn't "do" friends), and a smoking-hot guy who isn't her stepbrother...at least, not yet. It will take all three of them to help Whitley get through her anger and begin to put the pieces of her family together.

Filled with authenticity and raw emotion, Whitley is Kody Keplinger's most compelling character to date: a cynical Holden Caulfield-esque girl you will wholly care about.

I loved both of Kody's previous books, The DUFF and Shut Out, therefore I am incredibly excited for the release of this one.  Granted, I was excited before I knew what A Midsummer's Nightmare was even about, but just look at the title.  The summary sounds great too!

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?
