My pick for this week:

Cover of Peanut by Ayun HallidayPeanut by Ayun Halliday

“Before you write me off as some kind of messed-up delusional psycho, think about what it’s like to be thrown into a situation where everyone knows everyone…and no one knows you.” Sadie needs a plan when she starts at Plainfield High School, and she comes up with a good one . . . or so she thinks. But while it seems like a no brainer to pull off a fake peanut allergy, in reality it’s a lot harder than it looks. There’s the school health form that needs to be filled out by your mom (who you haven’t told about the scam). Then there’s your mom wanting to meet your friends-what if she serves them snacks? (Peanut butter sandwich, anyone?) And what about that bake sale, when your homeroom teacher thinks you accidentally ate a brownie filled with peanuts?

Why I can’t wait: I’ve first seen this title on Edelweiss and what made me stop and read through the synopsis was – I’m not going to lie- the cover. I mean… how funny that is?! I love stunning covers but sometimes simple ones like this stand out more. If I saw this in a bookstore, I’d definitely stop and pick it up to see what’s it about. I think it sounds like a fun YA novel – I just wish I didn’t have to wait until 2013!

What are you waiting on this week? Make sure to leave me a comment with a link to your own post above so that I can visit you back :)

    Books where the character is carrying on some major deception are hit-or-miss for me – I’ll be interested to see what everyone thinks of this one. Interesting premise, anyway! Nice pick.
