Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Title: The Fixer
Author: Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Release Date: July 7th, 2015
Publisher: Bloomsbury Children’s
When sixteen-year-old Tess Kendrick is sent to live with her older sister, Ivy, she has no idea that the infamous Ivy Kendrick is Washington D.C.’s #1 “fixer,” known for making politicians’ scandals go away for a price. No sooner does Tess enroll at Hardwicke Academy than she unwittingly follows in her sister’s footsteps and becomes D.C.’s premier high school fixer, solving problems for elite teens.
Secrets pile up as each sister lives a double life. . . . until their worlds come crashing together and Tess finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy with one of her classmates and a client of Ivy’s. Suddenly, there is much more on the line than good grades, money, or politics, and the price for this fix might be more than Tess is willing to pay.
Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Heist Society, readers will be clamoring for more in this exciting new series.
Why I’m waiting?
I have a tendency to mess around on Goodreads for long periods of time. Mostly, I am just fueling my self-diagnosed A.D.D. but nothing compares to when I stumble upon a book that sounds like this. This past fall during the Bloomsbury preview, The Fixer, was pitched as a YA version of Scandal. I am OBSESSED with that show and have been looking for something to read that sounds similar.
