"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
By Sarah Mlynowski
HarperTeen, to be released June 7, 2011
2 girls + 3 guys + 1 house – parents = 10 things April and her friends did that they (definitely, maybe, probably) shouldn't have.
If given the opportunity, what sixteen-year-old wouldn't jump at the chance to move in with a friend and live parent-free? Although maybe "opportunity" isn't the right word, since April had to tell her dad a tiny little untruth to make it happen (see #1: "Lied to Our Parents"). But she and her housemate Vi are totally responsible and able to take care of themselves. How they ended up "Skipping School" (#3), "Throwing a Crazy Party" (#8), "Buying a Hot Tub" (#4), and, um, "Harboring a Fugitive" (#7) at all is kind of a mystery to them.
In this hilarious and bittersweet tale, Sarah Mlynowski mines the heart and mind of a girl on her own for the first time. To get through the year, April will have to juggle a love triangle, learn to do her own laundry, and accept that her carefully constructed world just might be falling apart . . . one thing-she-shouldn't-have-done at a time.

Um, let's discuss how I want to read this book based on the title alone. This sounds like a crazy night of fun, I'm thinking Hangover meets Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist.
HarperTeen (hi! love you!), give a bonus to whoever wrote this description. Or to Sarah if she wrote it herself...because the tone is so...just...RIGHT.
Plus, I love lists (lots of evidence to support that claim). Sign me up to read this one come June.
