Waiting On Wednesday

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am eagerly awaiting: The Best And The Hardest Thing by Pat Brisson.
Release Date: May 13, 2010

How far am I willing to go?
How do I get him to choose?
How do I keep his attention?
How much am I willing to lose?

Fifteen-year-old Molly Biden has always been studious, dependable, some might even say saintly. And she’s sick of herself. So when she spots mysterious Grady Dillon, it doesn’t take Molly long to devise a plan to become someone new, someone who will attract Grady’s attention. And attract him she does. But when Molly discovers she’s pregnant, she realizes too late that her makeover has gone much further than she ever intended.

Told in a series of poems, from sestinas to sonnets to free verse, The Best and Hardest Thing is a story of a good girl who makes a bad choice – and then has to figure out where to go from there.

  3. Sounds pretty interesting! 🙂

  4. Hmmm,I have never read a book written in this form. I wonder if it is hard to read.

    Oh wow. This sounds good.

  6. I now have a teenaged daughter and it seems that I keep coming across these books about teen pregnancy. I always debate about giving them to her because I feel preachy.

  7. Sheesh! Talk about a mother's worst nightmare. I am so not ready for this age with my own daughter. I was the good girl too but thankfully didn't end up pregnant at 15, not that I didn't make my share of poor choices (a tad bit older though).
