Waiting on Wednesday (16)

And once again another WoW post is here! Already 16! (That's how old I just turned! Coincidence? I think not! ;) - it actually is, but shhhh!)

Albatross by Josie Bloss

Publishing date: February 2010

Publisher: Flux

Goodreads / Amazon

What's so cool about nice guys?

Everyone at Tess's new school warns her that Micah is bad news—a heartbreaker. But she can't ignore her attraction to this brooding, brilliant, friendless emo hottie who can turn on the charm—or heart-shredding scorn—at a moment's notice. Starting over in a new town after her parents' split isn't easy for Tess, and Micah feels like her first real connection. But what happens when their bond suddenly feels like shackles? And Micah starts to remind Tess of her freakishly controlling father?

With Albatross, Josie Bloss takes her storytelling in a new direction by exploring the dark side of relationships.

I know we ALL love our bad boys. And so of course, so does Tess. And while the relationship between Tess and Micah doesn't seem like it'll go too well from the description... it makes Albatross sound all the more interesting!

Plus I love the cover, don't you? The silhouette of the vine of flowers with the boy's face... very striking. I like the white/green colour combination too!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
