Waiting on Wednesday (10)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
I first heard about it from PageTurnersBlog.

My Waiting on Wednesday this week is:
Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer
Publication Date: February 15, 2011

I don't like Kathryn Pease. I could pretend everything's fine between us. I could be nice to her face, then trash her behind her back. But I think it's better to be honest. I don't like Kathryn, and I'm not afraid to admit it.

I saw a commercial where singers used their voices to shatter glass, but the whole thing is pretty much a myth. The human voice isn't that strong.
Human hatred is. Anybody who doubts that should feel the hate waves coming off of Brooke Dempsey. But I don't shatter; I'm not made of glass. Anyway, the parts that break aren't on the outside.

Brooke and Kathryn used to be best friends . . . until the night when Brooke ruthlessly turned on Kathryn in front of everyone. Suddenly Kathryn was an outcast and Brooke was Queen B. Now, as they prepare to face off one last time, each girl must come to terms with the fact that the person she hates most might just be the best friend she ever had.

I don’t read enough contemporary fiction. I found out about this one when I was looking through Goodreads giveaways awhile back. Also, it centres around a music: Brooke and Kath are both singers who want to make it big. I like it when I read a story that also includes some of my interests. I grew up taking piano lessons and playing flute in school, and sometimes just like to belt out a good tune. I just love music overall. You can check out the Goodreads site for a different synopsis of the story. It seems a bit more in depth than the one I got from HarperTeen.

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
