"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 Elizabeth Eulberg
Point/Scholastic, to be released April 2012
From the fantastic author of The Lonely Hearts Club and Prom & Prejudice comes a story of all the drama and comedy of four friends who grow into themselves at a performing arts high school.
Emme, Sophie, Ethan, and Carter are seniors at a performing arts school, getting ready for their Senior Showcase recital, where the pressure is on to appeal to colleges, dance academies, and professionals in show business. For Sophie, a singer, it's been great to be friends with Emme, who composes songs for her, and to date Carter, soap opera heartthrob who gets plenty of press coverage. Emme and Ethan have been in a band together through all four years of school, but wonder if they could be more than just friends and bandmates. Carter has been acting since he was a baby, and isn't sure how to admit that he'd rather paint than perform. The Senior Showcase is going to make or break each of the four, in a funny, touching, spectacular finale that only Elizabeth Eulberg could perform.

First of all, I adore Elizabeth Eulberg. Have you read Prom & Prejudice? Super cute. Also, have you seen her author photo? I think she is gorgeous. Not that has anything to do with the book. Just sayin'.
Plus, one of my many guilty pleasures is movies set in high school–level showbiz, and I just know that'll translate to books. (See: Glee, High School Musical, that one movie with Demi Lovato and that Jonas brother that I watched on the Disney Channel that one time.)
Anyone else pumped for this?
