Genre/s: YA, Realistic Fiction


Lucy just had the worst week ever. Seriously, mega bad. And suddenly, it's all too much—she wants out. Out of her house, out of her head, out of her life. She wants to be a whole new Lucy. So she does something the old Lucy would never dream of.

And now her life will never be the same. Now, how will she be able to have a boyfriend? What will she tell her friends? How will she face her family?

Now her life is completely different...every moment is a gift. Because now she might not have many moments left.

Why I'm Waiting

Honestly, just based on the cover I probably wouldn't have taken a second look at this book. Not that it's a horrible cover, it just didn't grab my attention, but once I read the synopsis I knew I wanted to read this - I can't get enough of YA realistic fiction and this one sounds really intense.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Yup, this one sounds really intense. But, I agree the cover is slighly plain ...

  2. Nice pick! I enjoy realistic YA and this one looks promising. Enjoy it!
