Waiting On Wednesday

                                                            This Weeks Pick:

                                                    The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook

                                                    Release Date: December 5, 2012
Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.
But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.
With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose....

I have loved every book by Eileen Cook so I am definetly looking foward to her next book.

This does sound like a familar plot but I will still read it since I have loved her other books.

I think the idea of her pulling off a con is pretty neat. I haven't heard of many books about teenaged conmen (conwomen). Thanks for sharing.
