waiting on wednesday - just visiting

Hello, my lovely internet pals! Today is another Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're new, it's a weekly feature that allows crazy book addicts to gush about upcoming releases that will drain their bank accounts even further. What's not to love? 

This week, my can't-wait pick is... 

Just Visiting  by Dahlia Adler 
Publication date: November 17, 2015
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary 

From Goodreads: 

Reagan Forrester wants out—out of her trailer park, out of reach of her freeloading mother, and out of the shadow of the relationship that made her the pariah of Charytan, Kansas.
Victoria Reyes wants in—in to a fashion design program, in to the arms of a cute guy who doesn't go to Charytan High, and in to a city where she won't stand out for being Mexican.
One thing the polar-opposite best friends do agree on is that wherever they go, they’re staying together. But when they set off on a series of college visits at the start of their senior year, they quickly see that the future doesn’t look quite like they expected. After two years of near-solitude following the betrayal of the ex-boyfriend who broke her heart, Reagan falls hard and fast for a Battlestar Galactica-loving, brilliant smile-sporting pre-med prospective... only to learn she's set herself up for heartbreak all over again. Meanwhile, Victoria runs full-speed toward all the things she thinks she wants… only to realize everything she’s looking for might be in the very place they've sworn to leave.
As both Reagan and Victoria struggle to learn who they are and what they want in the present, they discover just how much they don't know about each other's pasts. And when each learns what the other’s been hiding, they'll have to decide whether their friendship has a future.

Why I'm Waiting: 

Best friend bonding story? Check. Coming of age? Check. Nerdy love interest? Check. Racially diverse characters? Check! This book is everything I look for in a contemporary. I am SO excited to get my hands on it, and after last week's very serious pick, it's time to lighten things up! I honestly feel like this is just going to make me want to hug my best friends forever. Love it. 

Let me know what you're looking forward to, and have a splendid day!
