Waiting on Wednesday (#24): First & Then by Emma Mills (October 13, 2015 by Henry Holt and Co.)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

First impressions can be deceiving . . .

Devon has life pretty much figured out: she’s got her best friend Cas, her secret crush (also Cas), and her comfortable routine (mostly spent with Cas). New experiences: not welcome here. But as she enters her senior year, her parents take in her cousin Foster, an undersized weirdo who shows an unexpected talent for football, and star running back Ezra takes Foster under his wing. Devon can't figure out how she feels about Ezra. He's obviously stuck-up, but Foster adores him. Ezra has nothing to say to her, but he keeps seeking her out. And... Devon might actually like him. If only she can admit it to herself.

Funny, fresh, and layered, First and Then proves that change doesn't always tear things apart—sometimes, it brings them together.

INTRODUCTING THE TAG LINE THAT WAS USED IN THE PROMO EMAIL:

"Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love"  


he is so beautiful






I repeat - PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

    1. That tag line got me so incredibly excited! It is like two of my favorite things put together. I hope the main male character is like a mix between Tim Riggins and Mr Darcy - someone who is not the warmest or nicest person to strangers, but who actually is like the best guy ever!
