"Waiting On" Wednesday! 28

An Off Year by Claire Zulkey

From The Publisher's Catalog:

A tense and quirky transition year that will resonate with over-programmed teens.

Cecily has always done everything as she was supposed to: taken the right classes, gotten the right grades, applied to the right colleges. But after a lifetime of following the rules, she surprises everyone by arriving for her freshman year of college . . . and turning around. There are infinite possibilities for Cecily's unexpected gap year. She could volunteer or travel around the world-but, for now, Cecily is content to do absolutely nothing. What follows is a year of snarkily observed self-doubt and self-discovery during which Cecily must ask herself, for the first time, what does she really want to do with her life?

Released September 3rd 2009

This sounds really interesting. While I didn't take a year off between high school and college I sort of did between college and a real full time job. And I literally did as little as possible! I really am interested to see what the main character Cecily discovers about herself in her gap year!

What can't you wait for to be released?

  1. It does sound interesting. I didn't take any time off, but I know that for some people it's a really smart choice.

  5. Hmm, reminds me of some of the characters in Bass Ackwards and Belly Up. I would've thought it'd be different from that fuzzy cover! Eek!

  9. Sounds cute. I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I took a gap year between anything! I may complain about school and the inevitable time that I'll have to find a job, but in truth, I like the routine of it. ;)
