Waiting on Wednesday (5)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I know this book comes out really soon (like, tomorrow), but I'm still excited to read it:

A Match Made in High School
by Kristin Walker
Released: February 4, 2010

"When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life can't get any worse. That's until she marries her "husband": jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fiona's long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very dorky, very big Johnny Mercer.

Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes."

I've read several reviews on this one and it sounds like it's going to be hilarious. I reeeaaally could use something funny. Not to mention that this is a debut author (or, perhaps, her debut as a novelist)! Ta da! I've already ordered it for my library, so I look forward to getting my grimy lil' hands on it.

One of my favorite parts if being a librarian is book ordering :) This one does look like it will be funny.

This book does look like fun.

Regarding Soulless -- I would not hesitate to put it in a HS Media Center. It is written by a very correct Victorian lady, after all! The sexuality is confined to kissing and there is no offensive language. Alexia wouldn't allow it!
