This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. “Waiting on Wednesday” spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.
Title: The Prom Goer’s Interstellar Excursion
Author: Chris McCoy
Publication Date: April 14, 2015
Excerpt from Goodreads:
It’s Superbad meets Spaceballs in this hilarious extraterrestrial road trip!
Just a few days before prom, Bennett pulls off something he never imagined possible: his dream girl, Sophie, agrees to be his date. Moments afterward, however, he watches Sophie get abducted by aliens in the middle of the New Mexico desert.
Faced with a dateless prom (and likely kidnapping charges), Bennett does the only thing he can think of: he catches a ride into outer space with a band of extraterrestrial musicians to bring her back.
Can he navigate alien concert venues, an extraterrestrial reality show, and the band’s outlandish egos to rescue his date in time for the big dance? Fans of King Dork and Winger won’t want to miss this!
Did you read that blurb? Are you as excited as I am? If you aren’t, then there is something wrong with you…not really, but… A mix of science fiction and contemporary. Plus that cover. Even if the story isn’t great, I’d still keep it for my shelf! I can’t wait to read this one!!
