Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Who: Kirsten Hubbard
What: Like Mandarin
Where: Randomhouse
When: Marth 8th, 2011
Why: Hype

It's hard finding beauty in the badlands of
Washokey, Wyoming, but 14-year-old Grace Carpenter knows it's not her mother's
pageant obsessions, or the cowboy dances adored by her small-town classmates.
True beauty is wild-girl Mandarin Ramey: 17, shameless and utterly carefree.
Grace would give anything to be like Mandarin.

When they're united for a
project, they form an unlikely, explosive friendship, packed with nights spent
skinny-dipping in the canal, liberating the town's animal-head trophies, and
searching for someplace magic. Grace plays along when Mandarin suggests they run
away together. Blame it on the crazy-making wildwinds plaguing their badlands

Because all too soon, Grace discovers Mandarin's unique beauty
hides a girl who's troubled, broken, and even dangerous. And no matter how hard
Grace fights to keep the magic, no friendship can withstand betrayal.

Love the cover! Contemporary YA novel that sounds mega-emotional and fabulous. Plus, Kari from A Good Addiction LOVED it, and that's a big bonus!

Happy Reading!
-Harmony B.
