Waiting on Wednesday: One Man Guy

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a chance to highlight upcoming books that we can’t wait to read.

Alek Khederian should have guessed something was wrong when his parents took him to a restaurant. Everyone knows that Armenians never eat out. Between bouts of interrogating the waitress and criticizing the menu, Alek’s parents announce that he’ll be attending summer school in order to bring up his grades. Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshman year of high school. He never could’ve predicted that he’d meet someone like Ethan. Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. He can’t believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend—he’s barely ever had a girlfriend—but maybe it’s time to think again.

The synopsis of this book kind of make me think My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Mambo Italiano. It sounds both funny and heartfelt. Watch for this one during YA Pride in June!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. This one sounds like it could be amazing… all sweet and self-discovery-like. YA Pride sounds like a perfect time to be able to feature it, too. Hopefully it lives up to its awesome synopsis!
