When I first started my Want It Wednesday posts I was still very new to blogging and didn't know about the "Waiting on" meme. My original idea was to post of a list of things I wanted, but I've gotten away from that. I'm going to try and start that up again and post not only books but other fun things I'm wanting.

About the Book: It's Jessie's sophomore year of high school. A self-professed "mathlete," she isn't sure where she belongs. Her two best friends have transformed themselves into punks and one of them is going after her longtime crush. Her beloved older brother will soon leave for college (and in the meantime has shaved off his mohawk and started dating...the prom Princess!)...
Things are changing fast. Jessie needs new friends. And her quest is a hilarious tour through high school clique-dom, with a surprising stop along the way--the Dungeons and Dragons crowd, who out-nerd everyone. Will hanging out with them make her a nerd, too? And could she really be crushing on a guy with too-short pants and too-white gym shoes?
If you go into the wild nerd yonder, can you ever come back?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I was a nerd...ok, I still am a nerd. I wasn't super smart, but smart enough and I was friends with all the super smart people. I was in Science Club (not so much because I liked Science, but because my friends were in it and we were planning a trip to Science City), I was in Chorale, Thespians, Rep. Theater, and my friends and I watched X-Files, Star Trek, and wrote fan fiction. So how could this high school nerd not want to read this book?!?
I went to the Readergirlz chat last night with Melissa Walker and she gave this lip gloss a shout out and said it was amazing. I'm always looking for a good lip gloss, so I must go buy this one! Thanks Melissa!
I also really want to see this movie and hope it gets shown at our cool indie theater.
