Waiting on Wednesday (14)

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...

Sean Griswold's Head
Coming March 1, 2011 - Preorder it below

From Goodreads:
According to her guidance counselor, fifteen-year-old Payton Gritas needs a focus object - an item to concentrate her emotions on. It's supposed to be something inanimate, but Payton decides to use the thing she stares at during class: Sean Griswold's head. They've been linked since third grade (Griswold-Gritas - it's an alphabetical order thing), but she's never really known him.

The focus object is intended to help Payton deal with her father's newly diagnosed multiple sclerosis. And it's working. With the help of her boy-crazy best friend Jac, Payton starts stalking - er, focusing on - Sean Griswold . . . all of him! He's cute, he shares her Seinfeld obsession (nobody else gets it!) and he may have a secret or two of his own.

In this sweet story of first love, Lindsey Leavitt seamlessly balances heartfelt family moments, spot-on sarcastic humor, and a budding young romance.

My thoughts:

How flipping cute does this sound?! Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to Lindsey's debut Princess for Hire, but I've heard nothing but good things about her characters and writing. Plus she's just so darn adorable on her blog and on twitter, how could I not want to read her books?


  1. I'll be reading and reviewing this one soon and I can't wait. It sounds like a realy fun read :) Great pick!

    I'm doing a series on my blog for debut authors and the first post went up today, come check it out?

  2. You're right, that does sound super cute! I haven't read anything by Leavitt yet either, but I like the synopsis. Great pick!
