Waiting on Wednesday (51) — New Girl by Paige Harbison

Posted by on August 31, 2011
“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

 New Girl


I hadn’t wanted to go, but my parents were so excited…. So here I am, the new girl at Manderley, a true fish out of water. But mine’s not the name on everyone’s lips. Oh, no.

It’s Becca Normandy they can’t stop talking about. Perfect, beautiful Becca. She went missing at the end of last year, leaving a spot open at Manderley-the spot that I got. And everyone acts like it’s my fault that infallible, beloved Becca is gone and has been replaced by not perfect, completely fallible, unknown Me.

Then, there’s the name on my lips-Max Holloway. Becca’s ex. The one boy I should avoid, but can’t. Thing is, it seems like he wants me, too. But the memory of Becca is always between us. And as much I’m starting to like it at Manderley, I can’t help but think she’s out there, somewhere, watching me take her place.
Waiting to take it back.

New Girl is expected to be released on January 31st, 2012 by Harlequin Teen.

  1. This sound really good, but I have to wonder about the cover? Does it refer to the line about a true fish out of water? or maybe Becca is missing because she drowned. Guess I will have to get this one to find out. Great pick!

  2. MUST HAVE! I love the cover, the blurb, and pretty much everything else about it so I need it in my hands as soon as possible. Such a great pick Hafsah!

  3. I really love the sound of this one, it's been on my tbr for quite a while and it looks awesome! Like the cover too – simple, but eye-catching. Great pick! :)
