Waiting on Wednesday 5

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I am waiting for The Princesses Of Iowa by Molly M. Beackes.
Here is the cover art and synopsis provided by goodreads:

What does it mean to do wrong, when no one punishes you? A smart and unflinching look at friendship, the nature of entitlement, and growing up in the heartland.

Paige Sheridan has the perfect life. She's pretty, rich, and popular, and her spot on the homecoming court is practically guaranteed. But when a night of partying ends in an it-could-have-been-so-much worse crash , everything changes. Her best friends start ignoring her, her boyfriend grows cold and distant, and her once-adoring younger sister now views her with contempt. The only bright spot is her creative writing class, led by a charismatic new teacher who encourages students to be true to themselves. But who is Paige, if not the homecoming princess everyone expects her to be? In this arresting and witty debut, a girl who was once high-school royalty must face a truth that money and status can't fix, and choose between living the privileged life of a princess, or owning up to her mistakes and giving up everything she once held dear.

This is a debut novel that will release on May 8th 2012 from Candlewick.

How awesome does this one sound? I can't wait to read it! What are you waiting for?

This sounds really interesting! I'm also a sucker for books set in the Midwest since I've never lived anywhere else. :)

Happy Wednesday!

This one hasn't totally sold me on it yet. Maybe it's the cover...? I'm a very visual person, and I do judge books by their covers, so it's hard to get on board with this. But, I love Contemporary Fiction so I have to at least check it out, no?
