waiting on wednesday is a meme created by breakingthespine where we take a moment to share the cover and description of a book; while also talking about why we can’t wait for it !
THIS WEEK I’M WAITING FOR;
THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF OKAY BY LAURA STEVEN ( MARCH RELEASE IN THE US, APRIL AUS/NZ )
Izzy O’Neill is an aspiring comic, an impoverished orphan, and a Slut Extraordinaire. Or at least, that’s what the malicious website flying round the school says. Izzy can try all she wants to laugh it off – after all, her sex life, her terms – but when pictures emerge of her doing the dirty with a politician’s son, her life suddenly becomes the centre of a national scandal. Izzy’s never been ashamed of herself before, and she’s not going to start now. But keeping her head up will take everything she has…
WHY I’M WAITING FOR IT:
First of all isn’t that cover astounding? but mainly, I saw the idea of slut shaming being taken seriously, and shown for the horrible things it can do and I was intrigued. I just need to see someone deal with this topic correctly, and not victim blame or anything of the like so I’m really dying to get my hands on this.
until next time,
