Waiting on Wednesday (27)

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...

Bestest. Ramadan. Ever.
Medeia Sharif
Coming July 8, 2011 - Preorder it below

From Goodreads:
During Ramadan, we're not allowed to eat from sunrise to sunset, for a whole month. My family does this every year, even though I've been to a mosque exactly twice in my fifteen years. My exercise-obsessed mom—whose hotness skipped a generation, sadly—says I could stand to lose a few. But is torture really an acceptable method? I think not.

Things wouldn't be so bad if I had a boyfriend, but my oppressive parents forbid me to date. This is just cruel and wrong. Especially since Peter, a cute and crushable artist, might be my soul mate. Figures my bestest friend Lisa likes him, too.

To top it off, there's a new Muslim girl in school who struts around in super-short skirts, commanding every boy's attention—including Peter's. How can I get him to notice me? And will I ever feel like a typical American girl?

My thoughts:

Last year I read Skunk Girl, loved it, and immediately wished there were more books out there featuring Muslim characters. After searching Goodreads, I found this title and was surprised when I recognized its author. Medeia was actually one of my first followers. I'm so excited her book is almost here so I can finally reciprocate the support she's given me. I'm also looking forward to meeting her at ALA to thank her in person.


  1. This one sounds fun! Nice pick.

  2. Thank you for picking my book for your WoW. :)
