Waiting on Wednesday #14

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom

Lucas and Tessa have always had a close friendship. So it’s no surprise when Lucas finally realizes his true feeling for Tessa and he asks her to Prom. What no one expected, especially Lucas, was for Tessa to come out as a lesbian-or for Tessa’s decision to wear a tuxedo and escort her female crush to Prom, to spark a firestorm of controversy. Humiliated and confused, Lucas must decide if he should stand on the sidelines or if he should stand by his friend to make sure that Tessa Masterson will go to Prom.

‘Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom‘ has a really cute cover. I love the kind of drawn-on waistcoat/jacket, and the random woman’s arm hints at the LGBT-ness of this book, something which I would love to see more of in YA books. Hence why I’m waiting for it this week! Due to be published in April 🙂

Do you agree? What are you looking forward to this week? Please share your WoW in the comments!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this book! I hadn’t heard of it before but I’ll definitely be checking out. I feel like finding LGBT YA is so much harder than it should be so when I see a book that addresses those issues I want to snap it right up. And this sounds like a great story 🙂 thanks again!

    • Thanks for your comment! I definitely agree that there is a lack of or lack of awareness of LGBT in teen fiction, especially from a girl’s POV. It is so often only seen as a sexual thing, or as a ‘she’ll get over it’, that it would be nice if they actually tackled this issue. Freakboy by Kristin Elizabeth Clark is another LGBT book I’m really looking forward to 🙂
