Waiting on Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s where you spotlight a book that you’re really excited for and are eagerly anticipating. So what am I dying for this week? It’s a fun, smart YA contemporary romance called
The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
Publication Date: May 20, 2014
Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is used to getting what she wants, and when her boyfriend Jason breaks up with her for no reason, what she wants is to win him back before the start of their senior year. Lainey and her friend Bianca check the interwebz for tips and tricks, but the online dating advice is all pretty lame.
Then the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. Didn’t someone once say that love is a battlefield? Jason isn’t going to stand a chance once Lainey and Bee go all Zhou Dynasty on him…
Old school strategy and subterfuge meet modern-day dramarama in the story of a girl who sets out to win at all costs and ends up discovering what’s really worth fighting for.
Personally, it’s been really fun for me to be on the street team for THE ART OF LAINEY. Getting to know Paula and about the book has been great and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book, as well as Paula’s other upcoming book–LIARS, INC. I have high expectations of this book and I loved THE ART OF WAR, so I’m interested to see how this will turn out! I also made a nifty little countdown clock page for this book and all of you who are counting down the seconds to the release! Stay tuned for more on this book and #TeamLainey.
