Welcome to another edition of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.
Today I’m excited about a book I’ve preordered for Sparky, my Kindle, to be released on 2/7/12. Spin, by Catherine McKenzie, is a fresh, sassy and compelling novel delivered with pitch-perfect humor.
Kate’s To-Do List:
Go to rehab
Befriend/spy on “It Girl”
Write killer expose
Land dream job
Piece of cake!
When Kate Sandford lands an interview at her favorite music magazine, The Line, it’s the chance of a lifetime. So Kate goes out to celebrate—and shows up still drunk to the interview the next morning. It’s no surprise that she doesn’t get the job, but her performance has convinced the editors that she’d be perfect for an undercover assignment for their gossip rag. All Kate has to do is follow “It Girl” Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop—and complete the thirty-day program—they’ll reconsider her for the position at The Line. Kate takes the assignment, but when real friendships start to develop, she has to decide if what she has to gain is worth the price she’ll have to pay.
This one sounds like a lot of fun to me. Here are some blurbs from reviewers:
“Imagine if Bridget Jones fell into a million little pieces, flew over the cuckoo’s nest, and befriended Lindsay Lohan along the way….” (Leah McLaren, Globe and Mail columnist, author of The Continuity Girl )
“McKenzie’s tale of girls gone wild and gone to rehab is ripped straight from the latest tabloid headlines and will keep readers intrigued to the very last page.” (RT Book Reviews (top pick) )
“Catherine McKenzie, in her debut novel, ably invites the reader into the story… For readers who enjoy a light, breezy love story, this book clips along well and satisfies. Many will likely find this book enjoyable and a worthy debut effort by Catherine McKenzie.” (New York Journal of Books )
What new and exciting tomes are you awaiting? I hope you’ll come on by and share….
