Suggested Reading by Dave Connis – Waiting on Wednesday
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly bookish meme created by Breaking The Spine to highlight some of the upcoming books you can’t wait to read!
Summary, courtesy of Goodreads:
“Clara Evans is horrified when she discovers her principal’s “prohibited media” hit list. The iconic books on the list have been pulled from the library and aren’t allowed anywhere on the school’s premises. Students caught with the contraband will be sternly punished. Many of these stories have changed Clara’s life, so she’s not going to sit back and watch while her draconian principal abuses his power. She’s going to strike back.
So Clara starts an underground library in her locker, doing a shady trade-in titles like Speak and The Chocolate War. But when one of the books she loves most is connected to a tragedy she never saw coming, Clara’s forced to face her role in it.
Will she be able to make peace with her conflicting feelings, or is fighting for this noble cause too tough for her to bear?”
Why I Can’t Wait:
- banned books!!!!!
- and fighting them!!!!!
- that cover is so cool
- an underground library sounds ridiculously LIT (pun so intended)
