Waiting On Wednesday #9

Expected publication: March 1st 2013 by Point

A hilarious new novel from Elizabeth Eulberg about taking the wall out of the wallflower so she can bloom. 

 Don't mess with a girl with a Great Personality.

 Everybody loves Lexi. She's popular, smart, funny...but she's never been one of those girls, the pretty ones who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup). 

 Lexi's sick of it. She's sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She's sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She's sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she's sick of having all her family's money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection. 

 The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren't going to know what hit them. Because Lexi's going to play the beauty game - and she's in it to win it. -  Goodreads 

Unlike the majority of readers I wasn't very fond of Eulberg's 2011 Pride and Prejudice retelling, Prom and Prejudice, however I'm willing to give her another shot with her latest novel Revenge of the Girl With The Great Personality. It sounds like it could be great, (who doesn't love a great personality and strong, individualistic, female characters). I'm remaining cautiously optimistic for this one.

What are you waiting on this week?
