Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for Marco Impossible by Hannah Moskowitz (Roaring Brook Press):
Thirteen-year-old best friends Stephen and Marco attempt a go-for-broke heist to break into the high school prom and get Marco onstage to confess his love for (and hopefully steal the heart of) Benji, the adorable exchange student and bass player of the prom band. Of course, things don’t always go according to plan, and every heist comes with its fair share of hijinks.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
Um, first of all, does this not sound completely adorable? I love the idea of a guy sneaking into prom in order to confess his feelings to someone. ♥ Also, when I attended the “Say Yes to Gay YA” panel during Ascendio this summer, this was one of the books mentioned as one to watch out for, and one that the panelists who had read it highly recommended. Considering some of the other very intelligent things they said, I know that this book will be well worth the read.
Release Date: March 19, 2013
