Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's selection is The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate coming out on November 12, 2009.

The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove CoverA steamy Southern beauty makes one fatal mistake

Natalie Hargrove would kill to be her high school’s Palmetto Princess. But her boyfriend Mike King doesn’t share her dream and risks losing the honor of Palmetto Prince to Natalie’s nemesis, Justin Balmer. So she convinces Mike to help play a prank on Justin. . . one that goes terribly wrong. They tie him to the front of the church after a party—when they arrive the next morning, Justin is dead.

From blackmail to buried desire, dark secrets to darker deeds, Natalie unravels. She never should’ve messed with fate. Fate is the one thing more twisted than Natalie Hargrove.

Cruel Intentions meets Macbeth in this seductive, riveting tale of conscience and consequence.

From Goodreads

In a way, this book also has a Carrie-esque feel to it. While I am certainly not a huge fan of high school pettiness (Hello, there is a reason we graduated!) this book seems to go a different direction. I'm hoping that it will be more of a study of the main character (after the drama) rather than more drama. Here's hoping!
