Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking The Spine where we share upcoming releases that we are excited about!
TITLE: The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love
AUTHOR: Sarvenaz Tash
PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster BFYR
PUBLISHING DATE: June 14th, 2016
Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy…
Archie and Veronica…
Althena and Noth…
…Graham and Roxy?
Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.
But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.
When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be…even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.
Why I’m Waiting…
I first found out about The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love last summer and I knew I couldn’t pass up not saving a picture of the synopsis and cover photo. The first thing that really pulled me in was the cover. The bold fonts and the cover photo -which was taken in San Diego- really popped. The next was what really excited me, the pitch: Pretty In Pink goes to comic-con. Although Pretty In Pink isn’t my favorite -Sixteen Candles is- John Hughes is a favorite Director/Screenwriter of mine. Who else wouldn’t be just as excited as me?!
