Waiting on Wednesday: Even When You Lie to Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we get to showcase upcoming book releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on...
Even When You Lie to Me
Author: Jessica Alcott
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publisher: Crown Books for Young Readers
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Fans of John Green's Looking for Alaska as well as Lauren Oliver and Sarah Dessen will embrace this provocative debut novel, an exploration of taboo love set against the backdrop of a suburban high school.

Charlie, a senior, isn't looking forward to her last year of high school. Another year of living in the shadow of her best friend, Lila. Another year of hiding behind the covers of her favorite novels. Another year of navigating her tense relationship with her perfectionist mom.

But everything changes when she meets her new English teacher. Mr. Drummond is smart. Irreverent. Funny. Hot. Everyone loves him. And Charlie thinks he's the only one who gets her.

She also thinks she might not be the only one with a crush.

In this stunning debut, Jessica Alcott explores relationships-and their boundaries-in a way that is both searingly honest and sympathetic.
COMING JUNE 9th 2015
The first thing that caught my eye about this book is the cover. I love the chalkboard! Then I read the synopsis and it sounded like it could be a really emotional read. I have never actually read a book about a teacher and student romance and I thought I would give it a try. In the blurb they also say it is for fans of Sarah Dessen and well you all know, I love everything Sarah Dessen.
What are you waiting on this week?
