Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It features upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week's pick is...

Coming February 15, 2011 - Preorder it below

From Goodreads:
What if your worst enemy turned out to be the best friend you ever had?

Meet Brooke: Popular, powerful and hating every minute of it, she's the "It" girl at Douglas High in Lake Champion, Minnesota. Her real ambition? Using her operatic mezzo as a ticket back to NYC, where her family lived before her dad ran off with an up and coming male movie star.

Now meet Kathryn: an overachieving soprano with an underachieving savings account, she's been a leper ever since Brooke punched her at a party junior year. For Kath, music is the key to a much-needed college scholarship.

The stage is set for a high-stakes duet between the two seniors as they prepare for the prestigious Blackmore competition. Brooke and Kathryn work toward the Blackmore with eyes not just on first prize but on one another, each still stinging from a past that started with friendship and ended in betrayal. With competition day nearing, Brooke dreams of escaping the in-crowd for life as a professional singer, but her scheming BFF Chloe has other plans. And when Kathryn gets an unlikely invitation to Homecoming, she suspects Brooke of trying to sabatoge her with one last public humiliation. As pressures mount, Brooks starts to sense that the person she hates most mights just be the best friend she ever had. But Kathryn has a decision to make. Can she forgive? Or are some rivalries for life?

My thoughts:

I am super excited about this upcoming debut in contemporary. I'm all about supporting debut authors and The Contemps, so knocking out both with one novel sounds great to me. Every high school has its rivalries, and I can't wait to what Sara does with this one.
