Waiting On Wednesday [13]: Weird Girl and What's His Name By Meagan Brothers

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine - spotlighting books that haven't been released yet!

My Waiting on Wednesday this week is...
Weird Girl and What's His Name By Meagan Brothers
Expected Release Date: October 13th 2015

In the tiny podunk town of Hawthorne, North Carolina, seventeen-year-old geeks Lula and Rory share everything—sci-fi and fantasy fandom, Friday night binge-watching of old X-Files episodes, and that feeling that they don’t quite fit in. Lula knows she and Rory have no secrets from each other; after all, he came out to her years ago, and she’s shared with him her “sacred texts”—the acting books her mother left behind after she walked out of Lula’s life. But then Lula discovers that Rory—her Rory, who maybe she’s secretly had feelings for—has not only tried out for the Hawthorne football team without telling her, but has also been having an affair with his middle-aged divorcee boss. With their friendship disrupted, Lula begins to question her identity and her own sexual orientation, and she runs away in the middle of the night on a journey to find her mother, who she hopes will have all the answers. Meagan Brother’s piercing prose in this fresh LGBT YA novel speaks to anyone who has ever felt unwanted and alone, and who struggles to find their place in an isolating world. 
Ages 14–up.

Some heavy themes here and a depth that I can't wait to dive into! This is a book I hope lives up to all the hype. The friendship sounds so intricate and delicate at the same time I wonder how it's all going to end! Anyone else feel that way too?

Leave a link in the comments below to your own Waiting on Wednesday I'll make sure to stop by!



  1. Holy crap! Her middle-aged boss? Really? This one sounds like quite an adventure!
    Great pick!

  2. Like Kar above said: middle-aged boss? That did kind of throw me, until I read it was definitely YA. I like Lula's and Rory's friendship too, it seems like one I would have loved at that age in school. IT's hard being a geek in school :) this one's mine

  3. What an interesting plot! It sounds really great plus I love books with depth.
