Waiting on Wednesday [5]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases. It's hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick: Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers

***
Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard--falling from it is even harder. Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome, an all-girl clique both feared and revered by the students at Hallowell High... until vicious rumors about her and her best friend's boyfriend start going around. Now Regina's been "frozen out" and her ex-best friends are out for revenge. If Regina was guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth and the bullying is getting more intense by the day. She takes solace in the company of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past who she herself used to bully. Friendship doesn't come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina works hard to make amends for her past, she realizes Michael could be more than just a friend... if threats from the Fearsome Foursome don't break them both first.

Tensions grow and the abuse worsens as the final days of senior year march toward an explosive conclusion in this dark new tale from the author of Cracked Up To Be.

Wow. This books sounds great--especially being "frozen out" and "making amends." I've recently read Cracked Up to Be (review coming soon) and it was AMAZING. So I'm super excited that another book by this author is coming out soon.And haha, the name Regina reminds me of Mean Girls!

Release Date: January 5, 2010

I never read any books of this author, but this one sounds very good. Indeed Regina reminds me too of Mean Girls, and she wasn't too nice! :) I just really adore the cover and title. :)

Great pick.

I won this over at goodreads and am not quite sure what to think of it (I don't usually read high school drama) but the bully-turned-bullied premise does make it sound somewhat interesting
