Waiting on Wednesday

Keep Holding On by Susane Colasanti
(Viking Juvenile/June 14, 2012)

Between Noelle’s difficult home life and the bullying she endures at school, all she wants is to get out of her small town. Noelle would give anything to be with Julian Porter. But staying with her emotionally distant boyfriend is safer. When things heat up between Noelle and Julian, she has to decide whether she can be her true self with him.


Don't look up.

Lunch is the worst, but there's no safe place at school for Noelle. Keeping her mortifying home life a secret and trying to ignore the kids who make her life miserable are Noelle's survival strategies. Her emotionally distant boyfriend, Matt, isn't the one she really wants to be with. But there's no way she could ever be with Julian Porter.

When Julian starts talking to her, Noelle is terrified. It seems safer to stay with Matt than risk a broken heart. But when the bullying of a friend goes too far, Noelle realizes it's time to stand up for herself - and for everything that makes her keep holding on.

I've been reading so much fantasy & paranormal lately, it's nice to find something a little different for a change! Definitely need some more contemporary & realistic fiction in my literary diet so I'll be keep an eye out for Keep Holding On!
Also sounds like a good one for Sarah Dessen fans like me!!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

Great pick! While sorting my bookshelf the other day, I noticed that the majority of my books are paranormal fiction or low-key fantasy. I've been on a contemporary diet as well and I've devoured everything written by John Green. :)
