Waiting on Wednesday
My pick this week:
My Life, The Theater, and Other Tragedies by: Allen Zadoff
Coming out: May 22,2011 by Egmont
Summary: Life can’t be lived behind the scenes.
High school sophomore Adam Zeigler thought the best way to live life was behind the spotlight. When his father died two years ago, Adam retreated into the world of the theater, ultimately winning a coveted place on the theater crew and finding (what he thought) was his place in the world, high above the theater floor in the lighting grid.
But then a young actress, Summer, appeared in his view. Instantly smitten, Adam is determined to win her over. But to do so, he'll have to defy his best friend and break the golden rule of his school: techies and actors don't mix.
Set against the backdrop of a high school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, MY LIFE, THE THEATER is a theater story, a love story, and a bromance in one. The complexities of life, death, and high school are revealed as Adam struggles to find the courage to step out of the shadows and into the light.
This sounds so cute! I heard great things about this author (if the name sounds familiar it's because he is the author of Food,Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have) so I expect great things about this one! I also like the idea of the two cliques coming together, I really want to see what happens with that.
