Waiting on Wednesdsay: Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is MEANT TO BE by Lauren Morrill.  MEANT TO BE releases on November 13, 2012 from Delacorte BFYR.

Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.

It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").

But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love.

Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.
Doesn't this just sound so cute?  I was such a goody-two-shoes in high school, so this book is right up my alley.  Plus, every girl daydreams about that perfect guy!  And, most of the time, we end up falling for the complete opposite.  I love that this book is set in London, and I just know that we are going to be in for some laughs as Julia starts to break out of her mold.  Less than a month until this one is released!!!
