Waiting On: You Look Different in Real Life by Jennifer Castle (21)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: You Look Different in Real Life
Author: Jennifer Castle
Release Date: June 4th, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
The premise was simple: five kids living their real lives, with a new movie about them every five years. But the six-year-olds who shared the same table in kindergarten have become teenagers who are hardly friends. And Justine, whose edgy sense of humor made her the surprise star of the first two films, now feels like a disappointment.

Still, they've all shared the painful details of their lives with countless viewers. They all know how lonely it is to have fans instead of friends. So when the latest movie gives them the chance to reunite, Justine and her costars are going to take it. Because sometimes, the only way to really see yourself is through someone else's eyes.

This one's being compared to the works of Sarah Dessen and DEAR GOD does that make me excited. I really hope it's not all hype, but you never know. All I can say is that the cover's pretty, the concept is new and exciting and the author's last name is Castle, which I like a lot. All in all, I feel like this is another Waiting on Wednesday beach read for me. Which is great, because I need excuses for beach days. Or do I need excuses to read beach read books? I really couldn't tell you guys which causes what, but it's all good because I end up on the beach with a book. I'm too pale for my own good.


Have you heard of this one? Does it sound interesting/Dessen-y to you? And how about this streak of Waiting on Wednesday Beach Reads I've been on? Should I shake it up or is this the info you guys are looking for? Let me know in the comments below!
