Waiting on Wednesdays: The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes

6:41 PM

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Title: The Art of LaineyAuthor: Paula StokesPublishing Date: May 20 2014Publisher: HarperTeenSoccer 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.

WHY WE'RE WAITING:This seems like such a light and cute read and we certainly can't wait to get our hands on this book. The Art of War is also something we all learned in high school, and we really want to see how it plays out in this book.
