Waiting on Wednesday #68


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 I’m Waiting on Wednesday for School of Charm by Lisa Ann Scott (Katherine Tegen Books):

schoolofcharmWho’s got time for hair curlers and high heels when you’re busy keeping baby turtles alive?

Chip has always been a tree-climbin’, fish-catchin’ daddy’s girl. When Daddy dies, Mama moves her and her sisters south to Grandma’s house and Chip struggles to find her place in a family full of beauty queens.

Just when she’s wishing for a sign from Daddy that her new life’s going to work, Chip discovers Miss Vernie’s School of Charm. Could unusual pageant lessons and secrets be the key to making Chip’s wishes a reality?

Full of spirit, hope, and a hint of magic, this enchanting debut novel tells the tale of one girl’s struggle with a universal question: How do you stay true to yourself and find a way to belong at the same time?


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

Doesn’t this sound adorable? I love MG books, and this one just sounds like a lot of fun with a relatable and interesting main character. Plus I like the little hint of magic mentioned in the summary. Most likely this book is going to be utterly charming, pun not intended. :)

Release Date: February 18, 2014

    This looks so cute. I love middle grade books too. I recently read Doll Bones. That’s amazing! It’s not really as scary as it looks on the cover. Have you read that?

      I actually own Doll Bones – I ordered it when it first came out – but haven’t read it yet. I love Holly Black, though, so figured it was a safe purchase to make. Glad to hear you liked it! I hope I’ll be able to get to it soon.
