Waiting on Wednesday – Week 41

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming reads which I'm DYING to get my hand on.

This week's WoW is:

Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler

A teen’s world comes crashing down in this compulsively readable YA debut that’s as literary as it is commercial.

Gabby Gardiner wakes up in a hospital bed looking like a cautionary ad for drunk driving—and without a single memory of the accident that landed her there. But what she can recall, in frank and sardonic detail, is the year leading up to the crash.

As Gabby describes her transformation from Invisible Girl to Trendy Girl Who Dates Billy Nash (aka Most Desirable Boy Ever), she is left wondering: Why is Billy suddenly distancing himself from her? What do her classmates know that Gabby does not? Who exactly was in the car that night? And why has Gabby been left to take the fall?

As she peels back the layers of her life, Gabby begins to realize that her climb up the status ladder has been as intoxicating as it has been morally complex...and that nothing about her life is what she has imagined it to be.

Release Date: March 6, 2012

Why do I want this book? Do you really even need ASK?! *sighhh* fine, here I go...

1) I'm a sucker for the whole I-can't-remember-anything-from-before thing, it's kinda like Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, which really questions the character, "why the hell did I do that?" (Woah. In depth analysis from me much?)

2) Totally mysterious. Now I wanna know what happened. Like, NOW people. Jeez. *rolls eyes*

3) It's blurbed by Jenny Han. 'Nuff said.

Those are my three reasons why. Gorgeous cover, mysterious premise, AWESOME story.

What are you waiting on?
