This week I'm waiting for.....

The Thing About the Truth
by Lauren Barnholdt

To Be Released on July 10, 2012

In this humorous love story from the author of Two-Way Street, an unlikely romance is the best sort of surprise—but the wrong secret can ruin everything. Kelsey’s not going to let one mistake ruin her life. Sure, she got kicked out of prep school and all her old friends are shutting her out. But Kelsey’s focused on her future, and she’s determined to get back on track at Concordia High.

Isaac’s been kicked out of more schools than he can count. Since his father’s a state senator, Isaac’s life is under constant scrutiny—but Concordia High’s his last stop before boarding school, so Isaac’s hoping to fly under the radar and try to stay put for a change.

When Kelsey and Isaac meet, it’s anything but love at first sight. She thinks he’s an entitled brat, and he thinks she’s a stuck-up snob. So it surprises them both when they start to fall for each other. Kelsey’s happy for the first time in months, and Isaac’s never felt this way about anyone before...But nothing’s ever completely perfect. Everyone has secrets, and Isaac and Kelsey are no exceptions. These two may have fallen hard, but there’s one thing that can ruin it all: the truth.

Why I'm waiting:  
Lauren Barnholdt is one of my favorite Contemporary YA writers!  I have already pre-ordered this book because I fell in love with Sometimes It Happens, One Night That Changes Everything, and Two-Way Street.  I could read each of those books over and over again and never get bored!  The Thing About the Truth sounds amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on it! 

What book are you waiting for?
