Can't Wait Wednesday: The Date to Save - Stephanie Kate Strohm

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



This week I can't wait for The Date to Save by Stephanie Kate Strohm!

The Date to Save
Stephanie Kate Strohm
Series: N/A
Release Date: September 12, 2017
Publisher: Point
Waited on by: Sam
The word is out...

BROOKS MANDEVILLE, quarterback: Friday is the homecoming game and dance. It is a very big deal.

NATALIE WAGNER, marching band clarinet: Our band's halftime show performances are legendary even if our football team isn't.

CINTHIA ALVAREZ, Academic Battle team member: Our Academic Battle team has won five years in a row. This Friday, it'll be six.

TANNER ERICKSEN, sophomore class candidate for vice president: Holly has to win the election for class president this Friday!

HOLLY CARPENTER, cheerleader, Academic Battle team member, class president candidate: Friday? Everything is on Friday? How can I be in three places at once?

COLIN VON KOHORN, editor-in-chief of the Prepster: This kind of scheduling incompetitence could only have come straight from the top.

ANGELICA HUTCHERSON, reporter-at-large: I talked to everyone and my article is going to crack this story wide open...

This is what happens on the wildest day in the history of high school!

Last year, I had the pleasure of reading, It's Not Me, It's You, and I knew, then and there, that I had to read more of Strohm's books. I loved the style of the book and I laughed until my sides hurt. Imagine my glee, when I saw there would be a companion to this delightfully funny and charming book.

From the description on GoodReads, this one sounds like it will be packed with more of that humor that previously won me over, and I sense some fun hijinks as well. How could there be no hijinks on "the wildest day in the history of high school!"?










What are you waiting on?

    1. I had some of Strohm's older books on my TBR (Taming of the Drew, Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink), but I had not read one until I got It's Not Me, It's You at BEA last year. I am so glad I got the books, because I love her humor and I adore books with an alternate format. It was a wonderful surprise read that made my tops list, and I am super eager to read this newest addition.

    1. I love hijinks. I thinks it is because I was never the hijinks type of kid.

  16. Oh, your GIF is SO FUNNY!!!! LOL!!! I had not heard of this book before, but now that I have, I DEFINITELY want to read it! It sounds HILARIOUS!! I really need to read more books with humor in them. There's enough drama in real life. Although, I remember, there was certainly drama in high school life! Lol. That's another reason for me to read this == I get to go to "Nostalgia Lane". Goodreads, here I come!

    Thanks for sharing!! Also, thanks for commenting on my CWW post!! Have a FUN weekend!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. The trip down memory lane is one of the biggest reasons why I read YA.

  17. I haven't read any of Stephanie's books, but this sounds like my kind of read (and I'll confess, I "ran" to Goodreads to look up the companion novel). SO excited to discover a new read. Thanks for the share, Sam. :)

    1. It's Not Me, It's You was a laugh riot. I loved the way the oral history unfolded, and especially the editorial notes. I love an alternate format in a book, and this one really worked for me. Though, I will admit, my snarky self was captured by the title. πŸ˜›
