Waiting on Wednesday: Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff That Made Me Famous

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

Summary from Goodreads:

Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance?

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 convince 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.


Pizza, Love, and Other Stuff that Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams will be released by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) on August 21, 2012.

I love pizza and cooking and reality television. I hope that this book will be more than the sum of all of its delicious parts.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    • TV and food are both wonderful, wonderful things….and they are even better together. And then when you throw BOOKS into the equation, I’m thinking it should be like an explosion of awesome.
