Shrinking Violet-Danielle Joesph
Release Date: May 5, 2009
High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her own bedroom and iPod in hand, she rocks out--doing mock broadcasts of Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a spot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T--and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school she even dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a song writing contest--and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize--Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare... (taken from Simon & Schuster)

Why do I want to read this?
It turns out that I can be pretty shy, but I never saw myself as shy as Teresa. I'm looking forward to picking up this book because I know that I can relate to her in a lot of different ways. Shrinking Violet sounds like a great plot, and I look forward for it to come out.
