Waiting on Wednesday: Golden by Jessi Kirby

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...



Add to Goodreads
Title: Golden
Author: Jessi Kirby
Series: stand-alone
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: May 14, 2013

Seventeen-year-old Parker Frost may be a distant relative of Robert Frost, but she has never taken the road less traveled. Valedictorian and quintessential good girl, she’s about to graduate high school without ever having kissed her crush or broken the rules. So when fate drops a mystery in her lap—one that might be the key to uncovering the truth behind a town tragedy, she decides to take a chance.







Why I'm waiting:  Okay, I'm going to be honest.  I haven't actually read a Jessi Kirby book yet.  But I own both In Honor and Moonglass, and I know plenty of people who love these books.  And what's not to love?  Gorgeous covers, great storylines, relatable characters.  And this newest book from the author sounds perfect for me.  I was that girl.  Well, I was Salutatorian, but same diff.  (Except when I found out I lost Val by 4 one-thousands of a point, I went a little crazy.  :P)

Anyway, I promise to read the two books on my shelf very soon -- they're actually comparatively short next to most of my reads these days -- if the ARC gods might deign to give me an advanced copy of this book.  =)  I'm kidding.  I'll still read them.  I've been wanting to for awhile, hence the ownage.  But I want to read this one most of all.  :D

What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  25. Never heard of this one, but I kind of was that girl for a while - always pushing and pushing myself and never allowing myself anything dangerous/stupid. Now I'm wondering what that town tragedy might be...
    I'm in love with the cover by the way! All those warm colors make me think of late summer/early fall :)
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday ^^
