Waiting on Wednesday (86)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"The Queen of Kentucky"
by Alecia Whitaker
Poppy
Release Date: Jan 2, 2012

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Fourteen-year-old Kentucky girl Ricki Jo Winstead, who would preferred to be called Ericka, thank you very much, is eager to shed her farmer's daughter roots and become part of the popular crowd at her small town high school. She trades her Bible for Seventeen magazine, buys new "sophisticated" clothes and somehow manages to secure a tenuous spot at the cool kids table. She's on top of the world, even though her best friend and the boy next door Luke says he misses "plain old Ricki Jo."
Caught between being a country girl and wannabe country club girl, Ricki Jo begins to forget who she truly is: someone who doesn't care what people think and who wouldn't let a good-looking guy walk all over her. It takes a serious incident out on Luke's farm for Ricki Jo to realize that being a true friend is more important than being popular.

As soon as I saw this one on Juju's page last week, I knew I had to read it! It looks so cute!! Love the title and the cover, too:)

What are you waiting for this week???

This definitely sounds so cute! It kind of reminds me of Ten Miles Past Normal and Dairy Queen; all country kind of books. Nice pick!

Yeah. I agree. This does sound like a nice story. It sounds kind of light, but it may have more substance than one thinks. Nice choice :-)

I hadn't heard of this one, but it sounds like a fun read.(I think I'd rather be a country girl any day, though.)

The Happy Booker said...

I enjoy coming of age books and you can't go wrong with a southern setting. I'd like to read this one too!
