Waiting on Wednesday (4) @ 6:05 AM

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while, but finals are coming up, and I've been studying like crazy. So I'll catch up on my posts over the next few days, and for now, here's my Waiting on Wednesday entry:

A Little Friendly Advice-Siobhan Vivian

Ruby's turning sixteen . . . but the day doesn't turn out to be as sweet as it's supposed to be. Her long-lost father shows up, and Ruby doesn't want to have anything to do with him. Instead, she wants to hang out with her friends--loyal Beth, dangerous Katherine, and gossipy Maria. They have plenty of advice for her--about boys, about her dad, about how she should look and what she should be feeling. But really, Ruby doesn't know what to think or feel. Especially when a new boy comes into the picture . . . and Ruby discovers some of her friends aren't as truthful as they say.

Why do I want to read this?

I've heard a lot of good things about Siobhan Vivian, and I've never read one of her books. This is one of the first books written by her that I plan on reading, and I'm hoping it's a good one. I've been into reading all the teen-ish books in stores, if you see what I mean. This book seems like a teen drama with gossip, rumors, friendship issues, and boys, and I can't wait to read it.
