Welcome to my Spotlight post for Kate in Waiting!
Thanks to #TheWriteReads and Penguin for making this book available for review as part of the Blog Tour.
I really have enjoyed reading books by Becky Albertalli including her collaboration with Adam Silvera. And this book is no different. I am halfway finished with this book and I am happy to be highlighting it for the Tour!
Title: Kate in Waiting
Author: Becky Albertalli
Publication date: April 20, 2021
From the author of Love, Simon (Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda) bestselling YA rom-com queen Becky Albertalli, comes a new novel about daring to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight in love, life and, yes, theatre.
Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate and Anderson are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theatre rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.
But when Kate and Andy’s latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off-script. Matt is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.
Turns out, communal crushes aren’t so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson’s friendship.
