Waiting on Wednesday: Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine

 What I'm waiting for...


I’m your protagonist—Reshma Kapoor—and if you have the free time to read this book, then you’re probably nothing like me.

Reshma is a college counselor’s dream. She’s the top-ranked senior at her ultra-competitive Silicon Valley high school, with a spotless academic record and a long roster of extracurriculars. But there are plenty of perfect students in the country, and if Reshma wants to get into Stanford, and into med school after that, she needs the hook to beat them all.

What's a habitual over-achiever to do? Land herself a literary agent, of course. Which is exactly what Reshma does after agent Linda Montrose spots an article she wrote for Huffington Post. Linda wants to represent Reshma, and, with her new agent's help scoring a book deal, Reshma knows she’ll finally have the key to Stanford.

But she’s convinced no one would want to read a novel about a study machine like her. To make herself a more relatable protagonist, she must start doing all the regular American girl stuff she normally ignores. For starters, she has to make a friend, then get a boyfriend. And she's already planned the perfect ending: after struggling for three hundred pages with her own perfectionism, Reshma will learn that meaningful relationships can be more important than success—a character arc librarians and critics alike will enjoy.

Of course, even with a mastermind like Reshma in charge, things can’t always go as planned. And when the valedictorian spot begins to slip from her grasp, she’ll have to decide just how far she’ll go for that satisfying ending. (Note: It’s pretty far.)


Why am I waiting on this book? I don't know what to think of this book. It sounds really different from everything I've read before. And maybe that's why I want to read it so badly, because it's different! I really love the cover and the synopsis.

What about you?



  1. This one does sound different! I would be curious to see a review on this one.

  2. OMG, I love the sound of this one already–also, it features an Indian (well, probably Indian-American) protagonist! YAY FOR DIVERSITY!! Great pick :D

  3. I've not heard much of this one, but like Rabiah, I'm extremely excited about an Indian protagonist! You don't find too many of those in YA (though a few more now than in the past). I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Lis! =)
