Waiting on Wednesday: The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated!



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.

Why I’m Excited:

If Jennifer Echols, Jessi Kirby and Stephanie Perkins all decided to write a novel together (based on their [imagined] joint love of Young Americans), it might be something like this one.

This YA contemporary read is releasing December 31st 2013 from Balzar and Bray.

  1. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover… but this one is adorable! and the book sounds rather cute too.

    And the mention of Young Americans? Oh my… I loved that show for many reasons – only one being the young Ian somerhaulder…
