Waiting on Wednesday -31

Starstruck by Cyn Balog

Release Date: July 12th, 2011

Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Gwendolyn "Dough" X doesn't think she has much going for her—she carries a few extra pounds, her family struggles with their small bakery in a town full of millionaires, and the other kids at her New Jersey high school don't seem to know that she exists. Thank the stars for her longtime boyfriend, Philip P. Wishman—or "Wish." He moved away to California three years ago, when they were 13, but then professed his love for her via e-mail, and he's been her long-distance BF ever since.
At the beginning of her junior year, though, Wish e-mails that he's moving back to Jersey. Great, right? Well, except that Dough has gained about 70 pounds since the last time Wish saw her, while Wish—according to his Facebook photos—has morphed into a blonde god. Convinced that she'll be headed for Dumpsville the minute Wish lays eyes on her, Dough delays their meeting as long as she possibly can.

But when she sees Wish at school, something amazing happens. He looks at Dough like she's just as gorgeous as he is. But Wish is acting a little weird, obsessed with the sun and freaked out by rain. And the creepy new guy working at the bakery, Christian, is convinced that there's more to Wish's good looks than just healthy eating and lots of sun. He tells Dough that a mark on Wish's neck marks him as a member of the Luminati—an ancient cult of astrologers who can manipulate the stars to improve their lives. Is Wish and Dough's love meant to be—or are they star-crossed?
I LOVED Cyn's other books, so I can't wait to get my hands on Starstruck! The cover is cute-- I love the stars!

So, what did you choose for your WOW? ;)

Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at: Breaking The Spine.


  1. I've never heard of this before it sounds pretty different too which is good. I hope you enjoy it :). My WoW this week is a story set against a natural disaster.

    My WoW

  2. This one actually sounds incredibly interesting. I haven't read anything else by Cyn Balog, but I might have to check her out!

    Thanks for commenting on Book Labyrinth. =)

  3. This one sounds really interesting! A different twist on paranormal romance (if it even quite counts as that). I'm definitely adding this to my list! Too bad it won't be out until July!


  4. Oh, I do have to say this one sounds really good! I love the sounds of the stars being manipulated and used. :) Thanks for sharing!


Don't hesitate to tell me what you think! I appreciate all types of feedback, so don't be shy! ;)
