Waiting on Wednesday (51)

52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody

Seventeen year-old Lexington Larrabee, heiress to the billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire, is beautiful, famous, spoiled, and has never had to work a day in her life. But all of that changes on her eighteenth birthday when her ever-absent, mogul father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage, character-building job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast food restaurant employee, it’s the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.

Jessica Brody once again skillfully captures the humor and complexity of being a teen. Readers of all ages are sure to fall in love with this delightful riches to rags comedy.

Release date: July 2012 (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux Books for Young Readers)

Jessica's books are always hilarious and original and this one sounds fantastic! Not enough YA characters have jobs and I can't wait to read about all the different ones Lexington has to take on :)

What are you waiting on?
