Waiting On Wednesday (4)

The List


The List by Siobhan Vivian
Publication date: April 1, 2012
Publisher: Scholastic
Find on: GoodreadsAmazonBook Depository
An intense look at the rules of high school attraction -- and the price that's paid for them.
It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.
This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.
Now this might seem like a light contemporary novel, but from reading the synopsis I can tell it's going to be a novel that actually tackles deep issues that high school students face everyday. Definitely a book I would highly enjoy!

What are you waiting on this wednesday? 

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.

  1. Looks interesting! All the girls on the cover seem really pretty, of course. This is the kind of thing that could be really great, or not. Hard to call!

  2. Sounds interesting! I agree with Madigan, it's hard to tell whether it's going to be really good...or really bad. It definitely sounds like an interesting story though!

    Here's my pick for this week

  12. I have not heard of this one before. It is right up my ally. So many good books are coming out, how in the world does anyone have time to read them all?!!?! I am particularly excited because it is by Siobhan Vivian and I loved her book Not That Kind of Girl.
