Waiting on Wednesday (18)

This week I am waiting on -

Publisher: Henry Holt
Release date: October 25, 2011 

Summary via Goodreads:
When privileged 17-year-old Jasmine gets kicked out of her house, she takes what is left of her savings and flees to Santa Cruz to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Jasmine finds the ideal room in an oceanfront house, but she needs to convince the three guys living there that she's the perfect roommate and lead guitarist for their band, C-Side. Too bad she has major stage fright and the cute bassist doesn't think a spoiled girl from over the hill can hack it. . . .
I love books that incorporate music into them and this one sounds amazing! It also comes out a couple of days before my birthday so it will make an awesome birthday present! 


  1. This sounds awesome and I hadn't heard of it!
    Thanks for sharing!!! :D

  2. This looks pretty interesting; might need to pick this up. I would love if you checked out my WoW too!

    Btw, LOVE THE BLOG... I am not sure if we're fellow followers, but I follow you!

    Looking forward to hearing back from you,

  3. This sounds really cool, and definitely out of the ordinary! Books with music are always interesting to read about. I'm actually reading Five Flavors of Dumb right now, and it's about some kids who formed a band, but their manager is deaf. Really interesting so far, and a lot of fun to read!

  4. I think this has a lot to offer. Music is always a great draw for me in a story plus the protagonist has to prove herself another aspect that makes this one I really want to read. Great pick!

  5. Wow, how kicka@@ is this cover!? Love it! And the blurb makes me want to pick up this book now. Great pick!
