Waiting on Wednesday #15

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

Things Change                   Things Change

Sometimes things change, and sometimes they don’t…Johanna always feels like she has to be perfect-the perfect student and the perfect obedient daughter, which leads her to being the perfect outcast among her high school peers.

They say opposites attract, and that could be the only explanation for her attraction to Paul. Always the life of the party, Paul won his seat on the student council by running on an apathy platform. Wherever Paul goes, laughter follows, and Johanna longs to be a part of his inner circle.

And whenever Johanna wants something, she plans and works hard to achieve her goal.

Getting Paul into her life turns out to be the easy part. Keeping Paul happy while juggling all her other responsibilities is tough even for an overachiever like Johanna. Soon Paul’s happiness becomes more important to Johanna than her own. More important than her relationship with her parents and friends. More important than her grades, her safety, and her future.

My WoW this week comes from Walker Books in the form of Things Change by Patrick Jones. The blurb sounds really interesting, hinting at peer pressure/ YA domestic abuse. I’m interested to see what this will bring, as it sounds quite intense. I really don’t like the advertised cover though, so I found an alternative on Goodreads 🙂

I think this is a reprint/repub as GR says it is originally published in 2006, but also has a 2013 release date.
