Out now from St. Martin’s Press is Will You Won’t You Want Me? By Nora Zelevansky and retails for $16.99 in the US and $23.99 in Canada. Marjorie Plum never meant to peak in high school. She was queen bee. Now, 10 years later, she’s lost her sparkle. At her bleakest moment, she’s surprised by renewed interest from a questionable childhood crush, and the bickering with her cranky boss at a potentially game-changing new job grows increasingly like flirtatious banter. Suddenly, she’s faced with a choice between the life she always dreamed of and one she never thought to imagine. With the help of a precocious 11-year-old tutee, who unknowingly becomes the Ghost of Marjorie Past, and a musician roommate, who looks like a pixie and talks like the Dalai Lama, Marjorie struggles with the ultimate question: Who does she want to be? Nora Zelevansky’s Will You Won’t You Want Me? is a funny, often surprising, novel about growing up when you are already supposed to be grown.
My Opinion: I found this book to be very refreshing and some parts reminded me of a very familiar Christmas Story called the Christmas Carol but with a slightly different twist. And it also makes you think about what do you want to be in life that is a question that people struggle with every day, not just those leaving high school but every age can relate to this book. I really like the book and highly recommend you to read it and see if you like it yourself.
