Waiting on Wednesday (18)

Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials by Rosalind Wiseman
Release date: January 12th 2010 by Putnam Juvenile

Looking for a new beginning after a terrible mean girl past, Charlie Healey realizes there’s no escaping high school drama

Charlie Healey thinks Harmony Falls is the beginning of a whole new life. Middle school was brutal. But high school is Charlie’s big chance to start over and stay out of drama, except that on her first day she runs into Will, her ex–best friend, who had moved away. Now a varsity athlete and hotter than Charlie
remembered, Will hangs with the crowd running the school. But Charlie doesn’t understand their power until an innocent delivery guy falls victim to a near-deadly hazing prank.

Torn between doing what’s right and her secret feelings for Will, Charlie must decide whether to turn in her very best friend or live with the guilt of knowing what he did.

Rosalind Wiseman’s first novel for young adults is a fresh, funny, and juicy read about friendship, betrayal, and how far some will go to be accepted.

A book from the author whose book was made into the fantastic movie called MEAN GIRLS? I have got to read this! I think I prefer this cover rather than the cover with the bomb. The older cover was kind of … dull IMO.

  1. Can’t wait for this one either! And I’m glad they changed the cover because I wasn’t to fond of the original. Great pick!

  2. This sounds great! Mean Girls was based on a book?! Really?! I have to read it!
