Waiting on Wednesday: My Own Worst Frenemy

My Own Worst Frenemy by Kimberly Reid

Release Date: August 30, 2011

Straight outta the Mile High City, Chanti Evans is an undercover cop's daughter and an exclusive private school's newest student. But Chanti is learning fast that when it comes to con games, the streets have nothing on Langdon Prep.

With barely a foot in the door, fifteen-year-old Chanti gets on the bad side of school queen bee Lissa and snobbish Headmistress Smythe. They've made it their mission to take Chanti down and she needs to find out why, especially when stuff begins disappearing around campus, making her the most wanted girl in school, and not in a good way. But the last straw comes when she and her Langdon crush, the seriously hot Marco Ruiz, are set up to take the heat for a series of home burglaries--and worse. . . .

-I've actually already read this book but I'm saving my review for around the release date. It was quite good! The 'villain' isn't obvious and it's a plausible mystery with realistic (at least to me) clues and situations. Chanti is down-to-earth, intelligent and a bit awkward, which was a lot of fun.

What are you waiting on this week? Do you read lots of mysteries?
