Waiting on Wednesday #12

Hosted by Breaking the Spine

Wow, it feels good to be getting back in the swing of things here at Counting in Bookcases, since my vacation! Anyways,

My WOW pick this week is...

Famous Last Words by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
Sixteen-year-old Samantha D’Angelo has death on the brain. Her summer internship at the local newspaper has her writing obituaries instead of soaking up the sun at the beach. 

Between Shelby, Sam’s boy-crazy best friend; her boss Harry, a true-blue newspaper man; and AJ, her fellow “intern scum” (aka the cute drummer for a band called Love Gas), Sam has her hands full. But once she figures out what—or who—is the best part of her summer, will she mess it all up?

As Sam learns her way around both the news room and the real world, she starts to make some momentous realizations about politics, ethics, her family, romance, and most important—herself.
I just read and 100% loved the debut How My Summer Went Up in Flames by the same author! I hope this novel is as good as the author's first! The synopsis does sound epic though, doesn't it? What are you waiting on this week?

 And please check out my 150 followers giveaway, ending soon! Also, I just had my first author interview and giveaway, so, if you want to, have a look!
