Waiting on Wednesday #47: Smart Girls Get What They Want


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Smart Girls Get What They Want
By: Sarah Strohmeyer
Release Date: June 26, 2012

"Gigi, Bea, and Neerja are best friends and total overachievers. Even if they aren’t the most popular girls in school, they aren’t too worried. They know their real lives will begin once they get to their Ivy League colleges. There will be ivy, and there will be cute guys in the libraries (hopefully with English accents)! But when an unexpected event shows them they’re missing out on the full high school experience, it’s time to come out of the honors lounge and into the spotlight. They make a pact: They will each take on their greatest challenge—and they will totally rock it. Gigi decides to run for student rep, but she’ll have to get over her fear of public speaking—and go head-to-head with gorgeous California Will. Bea used to be one of the best skiers around, until she was derailed. It could be time for her to take the plunge again. And Neerja loves the drama club but always stayed behind the scenes—until now. These friends are determined to show that smart girls get what they want—but that could mean getting way more attention than they ever bargained for...." (Summary from goodreads.com)

I am excited for Smart Girls Get What They Want because the synopsis sounds really good and I love the title! Also it's coming out on my birthday so yay that's awesome too! :)

  14. Hey, thanks so much for mentioning Smart Girls! I will try to see if I can get you an ARC so you don't have to wait until your birthday. (Which just happens to be my father's birthday, too.) I wrote this as a former Smart Girl myself and as the mother of a Smart Girl (who's now in college and who spends way too much time watching TV shows about female serial killers...just like her mom.)

    There's so much fantastic YA stuff out there that it's a little intimidating to be venturing into this world where there's incredible energy and cooler stuff than the adult market, my home turf. Reading PARANORMALCY now ( very fun!) and looking forward to UNRAVELING after that. I don't know either authors personally, but already love their writing.

    Thanks again...I'll see about the ARC.
