"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...

Pretty Amy
Amy is fine living in the shadows of beautiful Lila and uber-cool Cassie, because at least she’s somewhat beautiful and uber-cool by association. But when their dates stand them up for prom, and the girls take matters into their own hands—earning them a night in jail outfitted in satin, stilettos, and Spanx—Amy discovers even a prom spent in handcuffs might be better than the humiliating “rehabilitation techniques” now filling up her summer. Worse, with Lila and Cassie parentally banned, Amy feels like she has nothing—like she is nothing.

Navigating unlikely alliances with her new coworker, two very different boys, and possibly even her parents, Amy struggles to decide if it’s worth being a best friend when it makes you a public enemy. Bringing readers along on an often hilarious and heartwarming journey, Amy finds that maybe getting a life only happens once you think your life is over.
~From GoodReads

Why I'm Waiting ~  It's Contemporary YA. Amy seems like a girl most of us can identify with. And, oh yeah, Prom sucks. At least mine did. But seriously, PRETTY AMY seems awesome. Lucky me, I have an ARC coming my way soon!

Expected publication: May 15th 2012 by Entangled Publishing                     

You can preorder PRETTY AMY at:
Barnes & Noble  |  Book Depository  |  Amazon

  2. OoOo I think they were doing ARC's of this one the other day however I have way to many to read but this one is on the list. Great choice!

  3. haha I loved my prom! But it can be stressful. I only went to my Junior Prom. This does sound good. I love stories involving prom.
    My WOW

  4. I know a few people are waiting anxiously for this one! I love her poofy prom dress. I know when I was grad-dress shopping, I tried on one that must have weighed 30 pounds.

  5. I was able to get an ARC of this one the other day too! I can't wait to find time to read it, it looks really good. My prom was around the time when everyone was wearing Jessica McClintock. Yuck, yuck. The dresses are a lot nicer now. lol

    My WoW this week

  6. I've seen this one twice today, I'm definitely going to have to check it out.

    Here's my WoW/WWW post

    Happy Reading!

  8. Hi there :) just popping in...

    I'm also your newest follower :)

    Here is my choice...
    Waiting On Wednesday

  9. I really have developed a weakness for contemporaries and this one sounds really awesome. Great pick! :)

    Fictional Distraction

  10. I am really excited to read this too!! I am lucky and got an egalley to read. They were doing an hour long slot to get it from NetGalley and I happened to see them tweet it and got one!! This has gotten moved near the top of my TBR list. Great pick!!

  11. This looks good. Look forward to your review. :)

  12. I'm so envious of you US girls and the ability to get ARCs! Being an European blogger sucks sometimes, heh.

    That being said, I can't wait to read Pretty Amy too! I've developed such a big crush on contemporary YA (if it can be called a crush ;)) recently, I'm sure this book will fit just right in.

    I hope you will enjoy it, I'm looking forward to your review!

  13. my prom was pretty good.. but I went with a guy friend.. while all my other friends were having relationship drama, Jordan and I were tearing up the dance floor just having a good time. That being said... we did end up hooking up at my 20th Birthday party on the bathroom floor at my Best friends house. It was a one time deal.. still friends though. :)

    1. Awesome. You know how much I love you right now, right?!

    2. You always have the best stories, lol. Usually a little inappropriate but still awesome. :P

  14. Great pick Andrea! This is definitely on my TBR list! Looking forward to your review :-)

  15. I'm actually reading this at the moment. It is pretty good so far.

  16. I'm also excited about this one!!

    April, you need to write you own book -- I'd read that!!

  17. I love this cover and I can't wait to read it. Can't wait to hear what you think!

  18. I absolutely LOVE this cover, and your description of the novel makes me love Amy just as much! I don't read a lot of YA, but you've convinced me to dive into this one ;o)

  19. Huh...hadn't really paid any attention to this one, but now I'm intrigued. :)

  20. Hi Andrea,

    This book sounds wonderful! I hadn't heard of it before now so thank-you for sharing.

  24. I love your pick, although I can't really relate.. I never had a prom, and my friends.. sure, one was a little prettier, one was a little skinnier, one was that, one was that.. but most of them were also male. XD
