Waiting On Wednesday #12

Hosted by Breaking The Spine

18599748Guy In Real Life  
by Steve Brezenoff
Pub. Date - May 27th
Description(from Goodreads) -

From the acclaimed author of Brooklyn, Burning comes Guy in Real Life, an achingly real and profoundly moving love story in the vein of Rainbow Rowell and John Green, about two Minnesota teens whose lives become intertwined through school, role-playing games, and a chance two-a.m. bike accident.

It is Labor Day weekend in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and boy and girl collide on a dark street at two thirty in the morning: Lesh, who wears black, listens to metal, and plays MMOs; Svetlana, who embroiders her skirts, listens to Björk and Berlioz, and dungeon masters her own RPG. They should pick themselves up, continue on their way, and never talk to each other again.

But they don't.

This is a story of two people who do not belong in each other's lives, who find each other at a time when they desperately need someone who doesn't belong in their lives. A story of those moments when we act like people we aren't in order to figure out who we are. A story of the roles we all play-at school, at home, with our friends, and without our friends-and the one person who might show us what lies underneath it all.

Why I Can't Wait - It just sounds awesome and I love the cover. Seriously it just sounds like a really good contemporary and I am a sucker for contemporaries.

  6. You have absolutely picked an AWESOME book for your WOW this week!! I LOVE the plot!! I think it's very true that, often, the people who don't really belong in our lives, DO belong, ironically enough. We are taken out of our comfort zones when this type of thing happens. When reading a novel, we need 'mismatched' characters sometimes. This makes reading a lot of fun!! And it definitely CAN work, in fiction as well as real life! Never heard of this one before, so thanks for featuring it!!

    Also, thanks for the giveaway, and for dropping by and commenting on my own WOW post!! : )
