Want It Wednesday (1)

I have no idea where this meme started *blush* but I found it first on GreenBeanTeenQueen. If anyone knows, please leave a comment so I can link that person ! :) I'm being greedy and listing three books...

First up, we have this book I found on Goodreads:

Title: Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis
Release: April 14th, 2010
Cover: no cover
Description: I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…

Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears Jessica whisper: I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that’s what it takes, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own.

Why? I don't know why, but I'm just intrigued by the description. I'm REALLY excited to read this. Plus, it's a debut novel so that increases my interest. I can't wait to see the cover for it. I want to know if Jessica will be saved, what will happen to Joy, and what secret this boy has. There are so many mysteries and secrets that I need to know. It releases around my birthday, so birthday present? Maybe. You never know...I might just preorder this one! :D April 14th is still a long way to go... :(

Now onto IHB stuff: I don't know which I'm looking forward to most. The first one sounds more interesting, though, but I could be wrong! xD No covers :( but we have descriptions!! :D The descriptions are from her website:

ACES UP.. AND OTHER PERKS OF A FAKE I.D. : is my YA about a girl who lies about her age to get a job at the local casino, and then gets caught up in an underground gambling ring. This one is done and revised, and just went to copyedits this week! Will be out next summer.

Why? Oh man! :D A teen working in casino? :O I really can't wait to see how this girl goes about and decides to work in a casino.

Next summer? :( That's about a year from now...hopefully, more details and the cover will be released and make up for the long wait! :)

ONE NIGHT THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING: my YA about a girl who keeps a notebook filled with everything she’s afraid to do, and then must do everything on the list in one night in order to get it back when it gets STOLEN by her EX-BOYFRIEND and his DUMB STUPID FRIENDS is going to be out next year, and I just turned in the first draft.

Why? One night to do everything? What a jerky boyfriend...This sounds like one of those novels that involves the character changing in the end with realizations and such, which is really interesting. To go through everything the character goes through and see a change, I mean. If my prediction is wrong, then oh well...Next year is also going to be a long wait, but I'm sure this will be great! :D
