Waiting on Wednesday: Lucky Fools

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Goodreads:

David Ellison dreams of acting at Juilliard, but he’s expected to attend nearby Stanford University, just like all of his classmates at hard-driving Oak Fields Prep. As if wasting his private school education weren’t enough, David is also on track to destroy his relationship with his girlfriend, Ellen, when he finds himself falling for his new co-star, Vanessa.

With David’s Juilliard audition approaching, and his relationship teetering on the brink of disaster, Oak Fields is thrown into chaos as a mysterious prankster begins attacking the school’s highest achievers, determined to sabotage their college aspirations. Anyone who excels is a potential target, and David, the star of every play, could be next.

From the author of the highly praised The Brothers Torres comes a dangerously insightful book about enduring the pressures of high school, surviving the ins and outs of love, and fighting for your dreams, no matter what.


Lucky Fools by Coert Voorhees will be released by Hyperion on July 10, 2012.

I’m drawn to books about academic and extracurricular pressures. Getting into college, particularly for performing arts, often makes a great story. Throw in a little pranking, and this should be extra entertaining.

Have you read Voorhees’ The Brothers Torres? If so, what did you think?

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
