'Waiting on' Wednesday [3].

'Waiting on' Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly meme hosted by The Breaking Spine.

My WoW selection this week is:

Tessa Masterson Will Go to Prom by Brendan Halpin & Emily Franklin
Release date: 27th March 2012
Publisher: Walker Childrens
Buy this book: Amazon UK

Synopsis [Goodreads]
Lucas and Tessa’s friendship is the stuff of legend in their small Midwestern town. So it’s no surprise when Lucas finally realizes his feelings for Tessa are more than friendship and he asks her to prom. What no one expected, especially Lucas, was for Tessa to come out as a lesbian instead of accepting his heartfelt invitation. Humiliated and confused, Lucas also feels betrayed that his best friend kept such an important secret from him.
What’s worse is Tessa’s decision to wear a tastefully tailored tuxedo to escort her female crush, sparking a firestorm of controversy. Lucas must decide if he should stand on the sidelines or if he should stand by his friend to make sure that Tessa Masterson will go to prom.
Emily Franklin and Brendan Halpin tackle both sides of a ripped-from-the headlines story to show that true friendship will triumph after all.

The cover of this book is quirky and fun and stood out to me instantly.  The story seems like the familar 'boy and girl are best friends but can they stay just friends' scenario (I adore these types of stories), but with a twist and I can't wait to find out how the authors depict this situation!

I would love to know what your 'waiting on wednesday' selection is this week...
