Waiting on Wednesday: Starstruck by Cyn Balog

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is:

Starstruck by Cyn Balog

Release Date: 2011
Publisher: Delacorte
Age Group: Young Adult

When Gwendolyn “Dough” Reilly’s boyfriend and best friend Wish moves away in seventh grade, the only consolation she can find is in her family bakery’s donuts. Now, it’s sophomore year, and Wish is coming back. But in only three years, they’ve both changed—drastically. She’s seriously overweight, and suddenly Wish is the most popular guy in school, and girls everywhere want him. Dough has doubts that appearances don’t matter and that Wish can love her as she is, so she launches into a plan designed to keep them together. That is, until she discovers that Wish’s gorgeous looks and charm might not be all they appear to be.

Love the blurb, it’s definitely something I would read and enjoy plus I really want to know what Dough (great nickname no?) finds out about Wish, could there perhaps be a supernatural element at play here. Anything with food in it also sounds good to me. Don’t you love the cover, mmm doughnuts!

Well that’s my “waiting on” pick, what's yours this week?

Hey, it's me, of course there are supernatural elements at play. :) The cover has changed (sadly) and the donut has rolled to the back flap but THANK YOU for featuring it as your WoW choice!!
