Waiting on Wednesday: The List (19)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I am waiting on...
The List by Siobhan Vivian

Expected Publication Date: April 1, 2012
Publisher: Scholastic
SynopsisAn intense look at the rules of high school attraction -- and the price that's paid for them.It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.

This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.
I think this book has a ton of potential. Considering that this IS Siobhan Vivian we're talking about, I know that she'll probably execute this book perfectly with a strong message, while still having that entertaining factor. I'm so excited! The concept sounds horrifying, yet so completely intriguing.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? :)

  6. Oh it sounds sooo good! I had never heard of it before but I'm adding it now! Sounds kind of like Mean Girls when they had their book where they talked about people. There are a lot of TV shows that talk about list. I like that it will follow all the girls pretty and ugly and their reactions!
