Waiting On Wednesday (11) @ 8:39 AM
Waiting to Score-J.E. MacLeod
Quirky, smart, and good looking, Zack Chase is a book-loving, talented hockey player.But he doesn't want to turn pro like his late dad, despite his mom's hopes. New in town, Zack's pitted against obnoxious Mac, the hockey team captain with something against Jane, the alluring Goth-girl who's caught Zack's eye. As incidents on the ice and off force Zack to decide what he really wants, he copes with sore losers, other people's drinking problems, and the consequences of making out with too many girls. As Zack focuses even less on hockey, he discovers other ways he wants to score in life, especially as a 15-year-old guy with spiking hormones. He's being chased by hot little Mona; his best friend Sheila has curves that make him sweat; and he'd like to show Jane that he's not another typical hockey player. Soon Zack finds out the hard way that people have secrets and burdens all their own, and that some actions have tragic, far-reaching consequences. (found on Amazon)
Why do I want to read this?
I've always had a thing for hockey, it's probably my favorite sport, so when I found this book I was absolutely PSYCHED. I wanted to run to the bookstore and pick it up. The storyline sounds interesting and that it will keep me reading until the very end. I know it's all the 'teen drama nonsense,' but hey, I'm addicted. What can I say?
