Waiting on Wednesday (21)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme event created by Breaking the Spine to help showcase upcoming releases.

This week I'm waiting for Shut Out by Kody Keplinger.

Here's the summary from Goodreads:

A contemporary reimagining of the Greek play, "Lysistrata," in which high school senior Lissa decides it's time to end her school's ridiculous sports rivalry once and for all by starting a hook-up strike.

SHUT OUT is a story about Lissa, a senior in high school, who decides to put an end to a decade old rivalry between her school's football and soccer teams after her quarterback boyfriend ditches her a few too many times on behalf of hazing the other team. Her plan is to start a sex strike - gathering the girlfriends of all the players of both teams and agreeing that none of them will hookup with their boyfriends until the rivalry is over. What follows is an all out battle of the sexes as the girls begin to explore issues of teen sexuality and the boys attempt to seducethe girls into breaking their oath. Lissa is determined to win, but she never expects the sexual tension that rises between she and Cash Sterling, a member of the soccer team and leader of the boys' side.
I much prefer Kody's description, from her blog, when she revealed the cover and the new name (it was previously Luststruck). I loved The DUFF and cannot wait for Shut Out. It's scheduled to be published by Poppy on September 5, 2011.

What are you waiting for?
Enjoy your reading!
