Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly post that highlights books we are excited to read hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine.
Title: Take A Bow 
Author: Elizabeth Eulberg
Synopsis: 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.

My Thoughts: I am BEYOND excited to get a copy of this book in my hands. I'm hoping it will be in my mailbox by Monday; a day before Elizabeth Eulberg herself is in Wisconsin! My friend and I are counting down the days until she comes. Oh, and the cover is just gorgeous! I just HAVE to have this book...

What are you waiting on?

  7. I've actually read this book, and it's really good! Definitely worth waiting for. ;) I'm super jealous that you get to meet the author! From what I've seen of her on Twitter, she seems like such a nice and super hilarious person. Have fun meeting her!! Good pick. =)
