Waiting on Wednesday (40)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read.

My pick is The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes!

Goodreads summary:

Soccer star Lainey Mitchell is used to getting what she wants, and when her boyfriend Jason breaks up with her for no reason, what she wants is to win him back before the start of their senior year. Lainey and her friend Bianca check the interwebz for tips and tricks, but the online dating advice is all pretty lame. 

Then the girls stumble across a copy of The Art of War. Didn't someone once say that love is a battlefield? Jason isn't going to stand a chance once Lainey and Bee go all Zhou Dynasty on him... 

Old school strategy and subterfuge meet modern-day dramarama in the story of a girl who sets out to win at all costs and ends up discovering what's really worth fighting for.

My thoughts:

I'm so excited for this book!  Paula Stokes also wrote the Secrets of the Eternal Rose series under the name Fiona Paul, and I'm looking forward to see how she transitions from writing historical fiction to contemporary fiction. 

The Art of Lainey releases May 20, 2014.

What's your Waiting on Wednesday pick?
