Waiting on Wednesday

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Better Than the Best Plan

Plans are made to be broken.

It’s the last day of junior year, and seventeen-year-old Ritzy—short for Maritza—is pretty sure she has a great plan. Summer job—check. Hang with friends at the beach—check. Keep looking after herself as she’s been doing since her mom bailed to follow her bliss—check. Or no check?

After someone reports that Ritzy is living alone, a social worker shows up and puts her into foster care. That’s surprise enough. But there are more surprises in store, and not all are unpleasant. Like the cute, friendly boy next door.

When Ritzy’s old life catches up with her new one, she has some tough decisions to make. Can she plan for the worst, but still hope for the best?

Count me in! This sounds freakin' adorable! And that cover is perfection!


  1. I have read several Morrill books and enjoyed them. I am all about the contemporaries, and this one sounds like a combination of cute fun and some real issues too.

    1. I haven't read anything from her but am excited too!

  2. This sounds good. I haven't read anything by this author yet. Great pick!

    Mary my CWW!

  3. This does look fun and maybe some serious stuff too, with the foster home and issues with her mom.

  4. This sounds like it could be a really cute read. I'm also loving that cover.

  5. I would have added this book to my TBR for the cover alone! Also, I want to steal her sunglasses. ;)

    Thanks for sharing this one, Brooke!
