It's time for the weekly waiting on Wednesday meme! Hosted by Breaking the Spine
Teenie by Christopher Grant
Release Date: December 28, 2010
High school freshman Martine (Teenie for short) is a good student, with a bright future ahead of her. She's desperate to be accepted into a prestigious study abroad program in Spain so that she can see what life is like beyond the streets of Brooklyn. She wouldn't mind escaping from her strict (though lovable) parents for awhile either. But when the captain of the basketball team starts to pay attention to her after she's pined away for him for months and Cherise, her best friend, meets a guy online, Teenie's mind is on anything but her schoolwork. Teenie's longtime crush isn't what he seemed to be, nor is her best friend's online love. Can Teenie get her act together in time to save her friendship with Cherise, save her grade point average so that she can study in Spain, and save herself from a potentially dangerous relationship?
-I've had my eye on this book for quite some time, but my interview with Christopher Grant sealed the deal. The fact that it involves a West Indian family, humor and a trip to Spain makes it something I would really like to read.
What are you waiting on this week? Any PoC releases? (I need more!)
