Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is where I share with you a book that I am looking forward to reading when it is released.

(idea by Jill from Breaking the Spine)*

What: Lucky
Who: by Rachel Vail
When: April 28th, 2009

Where: HarperCollins Publishers

Why (synopsis):

It's all good . . . and lucky Phoebe Avery plans to celebrate by throwing an end-of-the-year bash with her four closest friends. Everything will be perfect—from the guest list to the fashion photographer to the engraved invitations. The only thing left to do is find the perfect dress . . . until Phoebe goes from having it all to hiding all she's lost.

Phoebe's older sisters warn her to keep the family's crisis totally secret. Unfortunately, her alpha-girl best friend looks increasingly suspicious, and Phoebe's crush starts sending seriously mixed signals. Phoebe tries hard to keep smiling, but when her mother is humiliated in Neiman Marcus while buying Phoebe that perfect dress and her father decides to cancel her party, she panics. How far will she go to keep up her image as a lucky girl?

With lucky, Rachel Vail begins a powerful sisterhood trilogy, comprised of one book for each of the three fascinating Avery sisters, with all their secrets laid bare during the year that completely changes their lives. Phoebe is the youngest; her story combines first love and flip-flops, friendship and sisterhood, humor and tears. Breezy, witty, and poignant, lucky is Rachel Vail at her breathtaking best.

(This book is listed as a reprint but I have never heard of it. I'm really excited! The first thing that caught my eye about this book is the cover. I absolutely love the dress! I wish I had one just like it. It's the perfect cut. :)

  3. I love the cover (I would totally wear that dress!). I have an ARC of the second book, Gorgeous. Do you think I should read Lucky first?

  4. I didn't know it was a trilogy! I looked up Gorgeous and both books sound worth reading. I find it easier if I read books in order but if you have a big to-read pile, I'd say read Gorgeous. If the author did a good job, she should be able to catch you up in the second book. :)
