Welcome back, happy readers. Going simple today (because it’s been a DAY!) with another ‘Waiting on Wednesday: Edition Thirty-Nine’ post, and today we chat about an upcoming contemporary (insert surprise… I know). Let’s take a look.
Waiting on Wednesday: Edition Thirty-Nine
One thing I never tire of is a solid contemporary. This is a new-to-me author, which I am here for if the book and I jive. In this case, I’m extra excited for this story, because…
The story is said to take inspiration from THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA!!
I am HERE for this, and that’s all I have to say on this subject.
FAR FROM NORMAL
Author: Becky Wallace | Publisher: Page Street Kids
Genre: Fiction; Contemporary Romance | Publication Date: September 2020
Maddie McPherson is sick of Normal—both her hometown of Normal, Illinois and being the ‘normal’ sibling. But when she lands a summer internship with a sports marketing firm, she finally has a chance to crawl out of her genius brother’s shadow. Not to mention, a glowing letter of recommendation could secure her admission to her dream college.
But Maddie’s nickname is “CalaMaddie” for a reason, and when the company tasks her with repairing the image of teen soccer phenom Gabriel Fortunato, she wonders if she’s set herself up for embarrassment. Gabriel is a tabloid magnet, who’s best-known for flubbing Italy’s World Cup hopes. As Maddie works with him to develop “pleasant and friendly” content for social media, she also learns he’s thoughtful, multi-talented, and fiercely loyal—maybe even to a fault. Falling for a footballer is exactly how CalaMaddie would botch this internship, but with the firm pressuring her to get the job done, perhaps her heart is worth risking?

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland.
It’s Wednesday which means there’s another fun meme that bloggers enjoy taking part in. Today’s feature is all about the books we’re “Waiting On” with Can’t Wait Wednesday; a meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in. Organized by the lovely Tressa of Wishful Endings, here’s another edition of Can’t Wait Wednesday. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released as well. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)
