Happy Wednesday! Originally created by Jill at Breaking The Spine, Waiting on Wednesday was adapted to Can’t Wait Wednesday by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It is a weekly meme that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating!
This week’s Can’t Wait Wednesday book is…
Some Girls Do by Jennifer Dugan
Published by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers on May 18, 2021
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Romance, LGBTQIA+
Morgan, an elite track athlete, is forced to transfer high schools late in her senior year after it turns out being queer is against her private Catholic school's code of conduct. There, she meets Ruby, who has two hobbies: tinkering with her baby blue 1970 Ford Torino and competing in local beauty pageants, the latter to live out the dreams of her overbearing mother. The two are drawn to each other and can't deny their growing feelings. But while Morgan--out and proud, and determined to have a fresh start--doesn't want to have to keep their budding relationship a secret, Ruby isn't ready to come out yet. With each girl on a different path toward living her truth, can they go the distance together?
- I LOVED Hot Dog Girl (and also Verona Comics, but I have THOUGHTS on the fact that Goodreads didn’t have any cw/tw for that), and I am so excited for a new Jennifer Dugan book!
- HELLO HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COVER IT IS BEE YOU TEE FULL!!!!!
- Jennifer Dugan books tend to come out around my birthday, which means that I can call pre-ordering them a birthday gift to myself. (although this one publishes a couple of weeks later than her first two have)
