Waiting On Wednesday: The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
Hello again, darlings.
This week's WoW is all kinds of AMAZING...
The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine
Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.
OMG. Seriously, first paragraph is describing me, practically my whole life, I gotta admit I like flying under the radar.
But I also like imagining awesome other possible scenarios, Wren performing the Heimlich on Grayson sounds like a hilarious scenario to me.



  1. This sounds like my kind of read! I'm a sucker for cute contemporaries, so i'm looking forward to reading this. Also, that cover is so pretty!
