To be published: July 5, 2012 by Dutton Juvenille
An all-day scavenger hunt in the name of eternal small-town glory.
With only a week until graduation, there's one last thing Mary and her friends must do together: participate in the Oyster Point High Official Unofficial Senior Week Scavenger Hunt. And Mary is determined to win.
Mary lost her spot at Georgetown to self-professed "it" bully Jake Barbone, and she's not about to lose again. But everyone is racing for the finish line with complicated motives, and the team's all-night adventure becomes all-night drama as shifting alliances, flared tempers, and crushing crushes take over. As the items and points pile up, Mary and her team must reinvent their strategy--and themselves--in order to win. [goodreads]
I love scavenger hunts. This book brings me back to memories of when I was younger and my friends and I would go on scavenger hunts at sleepovers. The idea of this novel sounds like so much fun! I must admit, that cover along with that title definitely caught my eye before I even knew what it was about. Bonus, it pubs in just a week's time - yay!
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
