It’s time for Waiting on Wednesday again!
This week I read about a book titled “If I Was Your Girl” by Meredith Russo.
Here’s a synopsis from Amazon:
Amanda Hardy is the new girl in school. Like anyone else, all she wants is to make friends and fit in. But Amanda is keeping a secret, and she s determined not to get too close to anyone.
But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, Amanda can t help but start to let him into her life. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself, including her past. But Amanda s terrified that once she tells him the truth, he won’t be able to see past it.
Because the secret that Amanda s been keeping? It’s that at her old school, she used to be Andrew. Will the truth cost Amanda her new life, and her new love?
I’m really excited to see that it is becoming more and more acceptable for novels about young LGBT adults to be published! I think that they really help to open up a dialogue about the subjects and have become a useful tool in understanding how difficult it is for many LGBT teens.
This would be a great read alongside “The Art of Being Normal” which I really need to read as well!
This book is set to be released in the UK on 3 May 2016.
What about you? What are you waiting on this week?
