Waiting on Wednesday (60)

This week I'm waiting on...

Supergirl Mixtapes by Meagan Brothers

After years of boredom in her rural South Carolina town, Maria is thrilled when her father finally allows her to visit her estranged artist mother in New York City. She’s ready for adventure, and she soon finds herself immersed in a world of rock music and busy streets, where new people and ideas lie around every concrete corner. This is the freedom she’s always longed for—and she pushes for as much as she can get, skipping school to roam the streets, visit fancy museums, and flirt with the cute clerk at a downtown record store.

But just like her beloved New York City, Maria’s life has a darker side. Behind her mother’s carefree existence are shadowy secrets, and Maria must decide just where—and with whom—her loyalty lies.

Coming April 24th 2012 from Henry Holt and Co
Sounds cool and different. Plus, there is no denying the awesome that is that cover.


The Disenchantments by Nina Lacour

Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev’s band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she’s abandoning their plans—and Colby—to start college in the fall.

But the show must go on and The Disenchantments weave through the Pacific Northwest, playing in small towns and dingy venues, while roadie-Colby struggles to deal with Bev’s already-growing distance and the most important question of all: what’s next?

Morris Award–finalist Nina LaCour draws together the beauty and influences of music and art to brilliantly capture a group of friends on the brink of the rest of their lives.

Coming February 16th 2012 from Dutton Juvenile
Sounds right up my alley! I've been looking for books that deal with what happens after high school too, so yay. 


  1. SuperGirl sounds interesting. Cool cover too.

  2. Two great covers! I have never heard of Super Girl but it sounds good.

    My WOW:

  3. How have I never heard of either of these books?!?! Off to add to the list now.
