Waiting on Wednesday (153)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am excited for Girls With Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young! This book looks incredibly interesting. It's about young women who go to a special school that trains them to be perfect and obedient. In some ways it almost feels like the opposite of Gallagher Academy in the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter. Instead of being trained to their full potential, the school in Girls With Sharp Sticks boxes them in. That said, there is clearly something mysterious going on and I can't wait to find out what it is!


The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved—it says so on their report cards. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardians, the all-girl boarding school offers an array of studies and activities, from “Growing a Beautiful and Prosperous Garden” to “Art Appreciation” and “Interior Design.” The girls learn to be the best society has to offer. Absent is the difficult math coursework, or the unnecessary sciences or current events. They are obedient young ladies, free from arrogance or defiance. Until Mena starts to realize that their carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears.

As Mena and her friends begin to uncover the dark secrets of what’s actually happening there—and who they really are—the girls of Innovations will find out what they are truly capable of. Because some of the prettiest flowers have the sharpest thorns.

Release: March 19, 2019
