Waiting on Wednesday (150)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

It's always nice when an author whose book(s) you've previously read and adored (and who you'd consider as one of your author friends!) releases a new book. This author's debut was a Middle Grade novel, and it was so, so magical and fantasmical, and you absolutely must read it (and oh my gosh, that cover). Her second novel is a YA--and a contemporary! And it's apparent that the Cover Gods are a fan of this author. I'm just hoping to be one of the lucky few to get their hands on a copy of this book sooner rather than later.

Stevie Hart is homeschooled, but don’t hold that against her. Sure, she and her best (okay, only) friend, Sanger, will never be prom queens, but that’s just because the Central Austin Homeschool Cooperative doesn’t believe in proms. Or dancing. Still, Stevie and Sanger know how to create their own brand of fun.

Enter Max Garza, the new boy next door. After a near-fatal accident, Max is determined to defy mortality with a checklist: 23 Ways to Fake My Death Without Dying. Dead set on carrying out fabricated demises ranging from impalement to spontaneous combustion, Max charms Stevie and Sanger into helping him with this two-month macabre mission. But as Stevie finds herself falling for Max, it becomes increasingly difficult to draw a line between his make-believe deaths and her real life. In this offbeat, hilarious, and charming novel, Kathryn Ormsbee introduces three unforgettable teens learning to live each day like it’s their fake-last.

What book has you wishing you were one of the lucky few to get it as soon as possible?
