WoW: Sidekick (Natalie Whipple)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title: Sidekick
Author: Natalie Whipple
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Whipple House
Russ is a high school football player who feels like he always comes in second to his best friend, Garret. In sports. In school. With girls. Well, he's tired of it, and he gets the rather foolish idea that if he can win the heart of the new girl in town before Garret he can prove he's not just sloppy seconds.

His plan? Use his anime-obsessed sister's group, who has befriended the new girl, to get closer to her. He'd never tell the team, but he's been going to Anime Night for years and might even enjoy it. That would ruin his reputation, just like his secret love for cooking and James Taylor.

But pretending to be something you aren't catches up to you eventually, and Russ can only get away with living two lives for so long. As more than one person reveals they have something to hide, Russ must figure out what and who he really wants in his life. And more than that, he needs the courage to make it happen.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: Let's see, a story by the amazing Natalie Whipple that includes people obsessed with anime and a boy who has a secret love for cooking... Who am I kidding, we all know it had me at "by Natalie Whipple"! ;)

(FYI the ebook is available for pre-order on Amazon here!)

So what book are you waiting on?
