Waiting on Wednesday - Ditched by Robin Mellom

Ditched by Robin Mellom
January 10th, 2012 by Disney-Hyperion

High school senior Justina Griffith was never the girl who dreamed of going to prom. Designer dresses and strappy heels? Not her thing. So she never expected her best friend, Ian Clark, to ask her.

Ian, who always passed her the baseball bat handle first.
Ian, who knew exactly when she needed red licorice.
Ian, who promised her the most amazing night at prom.
And then ditched her.

Now, as the sun rises over her small town, and with only the help of some opinionated ladies at the 7-Eleven, Justina must piece together – stain by stain on her thrift-store dress – exactly how she ended up dateless. A three-legged Chihuahua was involved. Along with a demolition derby-ready Cadillac. And there was that incident at the tattoo parlor. Plus the flying leap from Brian Sontag’s moving car…

But to get the whole story, Justina will have to face the boy who ditched her. And discover if losing out at prom can ultimately lead to true love.

I was happy to score this one at ALA this week! The premise kinda reminds me of a Taylor Swift song.... I am ready to jump into another paranormal free month and this one will be at the top of my list! Plus, Robin is a debut author and I have been reading some amazing books lately from debut writers.

What's your pick this week?
