Waiting on Wednesday
Summary from barnesandnoble.com:
Destiny Faraday makes a point of keeping her distance from her classmates at Hedgebrook Academy. Her number one rule: Don't get attached. But one day, unexpectedly finding a car at their disposal, Destiny and three of her classmates embark on an unauthorized road trip.
They're searching for one fair day...a day where the good guy wins and everything adds up to something just and right. Their destination: Langdon, a town that Destiny's unsuspecting companions simply hope will hold a day of fun. But, as Destiny says, Things are not always what they seem. Only she knows it holds far more than that...a deep secret she has never shared with anyone.
Why I want this book: I love, love, love The Adoration of Jenna Fox and I love Mary Pearson's writing. The plot sounds so interesting and it seems like it'll be a book that will make me think. And sometimes they're the best kind of books. Looking for Alaska and Jellicoe Road, books that you can't get out of your head for days because they're filled with so much stuff to think about, are my favorite. So I'm really excited to get this one!
