We Covet This Book: The Promise of Amazing by Robin Constantine

How adorable does this book sound?! And that cover? We <3 <3 <3 it.

book cover
Wren Caswell is average. Ranked in the middle of her class at Sacred Heart, she’s not popular, but not a social misfit. Wren is the quiet, “good” girl who's always done what she's supposed to—only now in her junior year, this passive strategy is backfiring. She wants to change, but doesn’t know how.

Grayson Barrett was the king of St. Gabe’s. Star of the lacrosse team, top of his class, on a fast track to a brilliant future—until he was expelled for being a “term paper pimp.” Now Gray is in a downward spiral and needs to change, but doesn’t know how.

One fateful night their paths cross when Wren, working at her family’s Arthurian-themed catering hall, performs the Heimlich on Gray as he chokes on a cocktail weenie, saving his life literally and figuratively. What follows is the complicated, awkward, hilarious, and tender tale of two teens shedding their pasts, figuring out who they are—and falling in love.
The Promise of Amazing will be released on December 31, 2013. Click on the cover to go to the book's Goodreads page. You might also want to check out Robin Constantine's website.

P.S. I'm finally on Instagram! My username is "michelleisreading" and I'm planning to do an "Instagram read" in the near future where I'll take pictures of passages from my current reads and my reactions to them, etc. Just gotta find the right book... 

Oh, and there will be a lot of Hawaii pics, food pics, Russian knick-knack pics, kitties, book recs and other randomness. Followers are welcome. ;)

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series we do here on Wednesdays. It will feature books we are very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is basically the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, but we just like the title "books we covet" better. We will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available.
