Waiting On Wednesday #6: The Promise Of Amazing

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

So what book am I anxiously awaiting to read?
The Promise Of Amazing By Robin Constanine

Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how. 

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love. 

So lately i've been drawn to more YA-Contenporary novels and put the whole Dystopian/Paranormal novels have been put on the back-burners. This book looks adorable, but as we all know from my Things I Really Don't Understand Post I’m not a fan of characters on book covers, but seriously... how cute is the cover for The Promise of Amazing look?  The premise doesn’t sound like anything I haven’t read before, but it does sound like a book that I will be able to relate to and hopefully, crossing my fingers, will be able to swoon over.

 Never know right? What do y'all think of this book?
