WoW is a weekly meme created by Jill @ Breaking The Spine.
It spotlights future reads we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I chose a book by Lili Wilkinson. I haven't got the chance to read something by her but her books sound exactly like my kind of book. And I've had amazing experiences with Aussie authors so I don't care if I have to pay a lot for shipping, I.will.have.this.book!
I need it. Love Shy, come faster!
Love Shy by Lili Wilkinson.
Penny Drummond aspires to be a journalist. A good one. A Pulitzer prize-winning journalist. In the meantime, she's honing her journalistic skills on the East Glendale Secondary College Gazette. When she discovers a boy at her school is posting anonymous messages on loveshy.com, Penny believes she has found just the story that will help make her name. Her mission: find him, fix him, feature-article him. Next stop: Pulitzer Prize.
But what will become of her 'journey of the soul' article if the love-shy boy is not who she expects? And what happens when Penny finds that her soul might be in need of a little attention as well?
Love-Shy is a lively, entertaining and warm-hearted romantic comedy filled with serious secrets, ambitious plans, awkward moments and unexpected friendships - funny and engaging to the very last page.
Don't you think it sounds extremely awesome? I love the idea of this book. And Penny is totally the kind of girl I like reading about, sassy, funny, witty, independent and with aspirations. We need more of those girls in YA literature.
