Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating

Red by Alison Cherry
Genre: YA Contemporary
Release Date: Oct 8 / 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Books
Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.
Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:
I know your secret.
Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.
Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?

Is it just me or does this sound a bit like Pretty Little Liars? I never liked the PLL show but this sounds really good. Lately, contemporaries all sound more or less the same but this sounds quite refreshing :)


  1. YES! This one has been on my radar for quite a while! It seems to have a mystery as well -- and I LOVEEE mysteries <3 To be honest, I have never watched PLL. They are on season 5 right now?? Far too long to catch up .__. Plus, I have a gazillion anime/manga/books to catch up with I am not even sure about starting a long TV series xD

  2. OMG I AM ADDICTED TO PRETTY LITTLE LIARS. THE T.V SHOW I MEAN. But it isn't really like this, well sorta.

    Awesome pick, Ariella! <33
