Waiting on Wednesday: The List

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight books we can't wait for.

The List, by Siobhan Vivian
336 pages
1 April 2012

GoodReads summary:
An intense look at the rules of high school attraction -- and the price that's paid for them.

It happens every year. A list is posted, and one girl from each grade is chosen as the prettiest, and another is chosen as the ugliest. Nobody knows who makes the list. It almost doesn't matter. The damage is done the minute it goes up.

This is the story of eight girls, freshman to senior, "pretty" and "ugly." And it's also the story of how we see ourselves, and how other people see us, and the tangled connection of the two.

Why I want this book: A) The summary sounds really great, obvs. B) See that girl on the cover on the middle right? Pretty sure I've worn that exact outfit. C) I like trying to figure out how to pronounce the author's first name: Siobhan. See-o-ban? Shob-han? See-ob-an? The possibilities are endless.


  1. That does sound like a great book! Thanks for sharing!! That is an old Irish name and it is pronounced Shi-Vawn. I know looks nothing like it is pronounced.
