Waiting on Wednesday #14

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to persuade her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America’s finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame.

Once on set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself. A terrific YA offering—fresh, fun, and sprinkled with romance.

WoW because: I fell in love with this book as soon as I saw the cover and read the title. What can I say, I'm a sucker for all things quirky and cute and Pizza... looks like both. I mean, come on: How adorable is that cover? How lovable does Sophie sound? And the premise is a reality TV cooking competition (aka one of the best inventions known to man). Pizza... sounds like so many of my guilty pleasures rolled into one delicious-looking dough.
