Waiting on Wednesday (4)


Absolutely Maybe
by Lisa Yee
Coming out February 2009

Meet Maybelline Mary Katherine Mary Ann Chestnut, named for two Miss Americas and her mother Chessy's favorite brand of mascara. Chessy teaches the students in her charm school her Seven Select Rules for Young Ladies, but she won't tell Maybe who her real father is -- or protect her from her latest scuzzball boyfriend. So Maybe hitches a ride to California with her friends Hollywood and Thammasat Tantipinichwong Scheider (aka Ted) -- and what she finds there is funny, sad, true, and inspiring...
  I've heard good things about this book, and I love Lisa's writing, so I guess you could say I'm excited to check Absolutely Maybe out!
