Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.
Romance. Dance. Verse. This sounds like the perfect book combination. I always love a good romance, and verse novels are always a winner with me. When it comes to dance, I’ve always been the tiniest bit jealous of girls who can dance competivitely and/or professionally. I’m simply not that coordinated, so I enjoy living vicariously through them while reading. Audition by Stasia Ward Kehoe is a debut novel that I’m eager to read. I’m sure my girls in class will be all over this book as well 🙂

Summary (From Goodreads): When high school junior Sara wins a coveted scholarship to study ballet, she must sacrifice everything for her new life as a professional dancer-in-training. Living in a strange city with a host family, she’s deeply lonely-until she falls into the arms of Remington, a choreographer in his early twenties. At first, she loves being Rem’s muse, but as she discovers a surprising passion for writing, she begins to question whether she’s chosen the right path. Is Rem using her, or is it the other way around? And is dancing still her dream, or does she need something more? This debut novel in verse is as intense and romantic as it is eloquent.
