Waiting on Wednesday: Girls Like Me by Lola St. Vil

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Girls Like Me

     Fifteen-year-old Shay Summers is trying to cope with the death of her father, being overweight, and threats from a girl bully in school.  When she falls in love with Blake, a mysterious boy online, insecure Shay doesn't want to tell him who she is.   But with the help of her two best friends, as well as an assist by Kermit and Miss Piggy, ultimately Shay and Blake’s love prevails. 
     Girls Like Me is a fun and fresh poetic take on teen angst, social media and online anonymity, and high school romance.

Expected Publication: October 4, 2016 
Published by: HMH Books for Young Readers

Why I'm Waiting: Y'all know I'm a sucker for a diverse read and especially one with a super cute cover. Add on to the fact that it's a contemp and I am SOLD. Also since social media is so prevalent now, its nice to see more books incorporating those sites. Especially since it's hard to find a teen that can put down their phone for more than 5 minutes.....

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you be waiting on this with me?
