Waiting On Wednesday #81: DREAM BOY by Madelynn Rosenberg and Mary Crockett (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Madelyn Rosenberg and Mary Crockett
Expected release date: July 1st, 2014
Published by: Sourcebooks Fire
Genre: Young Adult 
Format: Paperback, eBook


Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. 
Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that — a dream. 
Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class. 

One of her friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. 
While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. 

But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams — where they come from and what they mean — she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. 
More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.

What I'm waiting for DREAM BOY...

FIRST, did you see the gorgeous cover???

Second, SO mysterious! Who is this Martin boy??? And where did he come from???
