Waiting on Wednesday: The Brightsiders



Happy Wednesday book lovers!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  In this prompt we discuss books that have yet to be published that we’re excited about! Head over to her blog to learn more.

I absolutely CANNOT wait to read The Brightsiders by Jen Wilde! It is a YA contemporary about a teen rockstar and her life in the spot light. It is a super diverse book and I’m just dying to read it. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of it from Fierce Reads and I’m SO ready to dive in, so look out for that review!


Title: The Brightsiders

Author: Jen Wilde

Genre: YA Contemporary

Publisher: Swoon Reads

Publication Date: May 22, 2018

Synopsis: A teen rockstar has to navigate family, love, coming out, and life in the spotlight after being labeled the latest celebrity trainwreck in Jen Wilde’s quirky and utterly relatable novel.

As a rock star drummer in the hit band The Brightsiders, Emmy King’s life should be perfect. But there’s nothing the paparazzi love more than watching a celebrity crash and burn. When a night of partying lands Emmy in hospital and her girlfriend in jail, she’s branded the latest tabloid train wreck.

Luckily, Emmy has her friends and bandmates, including the super-swoonworthy Alfie, to help her pick up the pieces of her life. She knows hooking up with a band member is exactly the kind of trouble she should be avoiding, and yet Emmy and Alfie Just. Keep. Kissing.

Will the inevitable fallout turn her into a clickbait scandal (again)? Or will she find the strength to stand on her own?
