Waiting on Wednesday - The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that showcases our most wanted upcoming releases.

"The Best Night of Your (Pathetic) Life" by Tara Altebrando
*July 5th, 2012*


Publisher: Penguin

An all-day scavenger hunt in the name of eternal small-town glory
With only a week until graduation, there’s one last thing Mary and her friends must do together: participate in the Oyster Point High Official Unofficial Senior Week Scavenger Hunt. And Mary is determined to win.

Mary lost her spot at Georgetown to self-professed “it” bully Pete Lembo, and she’s not about to lose again. But everyone is racing for the finish line with complicated motives, and the team’s all-night adventure becomes all-night drama as shifting alliances, flared tempers, and crushing crushes take over. As the items and points pile up, Mary and her team must reinvent their strategy—and themselves—in order to win.

This book sounds like so much fun! The synopsis actually reminds me a lot of my own high school days. My friends and I did random scavenger hunts on occasion, to pass the time and just for goofs. It also sounds like it will have some awesome character growth and story development. Plus, it's a contemp and you can't go wrong there! Definitely pining for this one :0)

  9. Ahhh! :D Awesome awesome pick. I haven't heard of this one before, but I just added it to my TBR list. It definitely sounds like a quick, fun read. I've never seen any YA novels based around a scavenger hunt before, so I'm curious. *-*
