Waiting on Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine, and is now hosted by Wishful Endings (as Can’t Wait Wednesday). It’s a feature where they discuss one of the most anticipated upcoming book releases. The anticipated book release is Fake Plastic Girl by Zara Lisbon released on March 26, 2019!
Celebrity-studded parties that last long into the night. Camera flashes and designer clothes. And a body found floating in the Venice Beach canals.
But let’s start at the beginning.
Justine Childs is your average teenage girl, until the day ex-child-star Eva Kate Kelly moves in across the way. Eva Kate is gorgeous, seductive, and eager to invite Justine into her glittery world. Their relationship intensifies quickly, but there is a lot they aren’t telling each other, and in the midst of the whirlwind, a girl lies dead. Who killed Eva Kate? Justine swears her innocence—and she’d like you to hear her side of the story.
Why I’m Waiting
Lately, I have been in a California kick since reading Daisy Jones & the Six! This mystery novel set in the classic setting of Venice Beach where a gruesome murder occurs sounds like the ultimate read to feed my California addiction! The book cover is insta-love and the story seems to have a haunting Great Gatsby feel with a cool California vibe. The Great Gatsby is one of my top favorite classic novels and I am always drawn to Great Gatsby style retellings! I am not your typical mystery reader but the fact that this is set in California with a Great Gatsby-like essence sounds like the perfect elements of an unputdownable book!
