WoW: Famous Last Words by Jennifer S. Doktorski

Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine this is the weekly feature in which we highlight titles we are looking forward to reading.


Famous Last Words
By Jennifer S. Doktorski
ISBN: 9780805093674
Publication Date: July 2, 2013








GoodReads Summary:

Sixteen-year-old Samantha D’Angelo has death on the brain. Her summer internship at the local newspaper has her writing obituaries instead of soaking up the sun at the beach. Between Shelby, Sam’s boy-crazy best friend; her boss Harry, a true-blue newspaper man; and AJ, her fellow “intern scum” (aka the cute drummer for a band called Love Gas), Sam has her hands full. But once she figures out what—or who—is the best part of her summer, will she mess it all up?

As Sam learns her way around both the news room and the real world, she starts to make some momentous realizations about politics, ethics, her family, romance, and most important—herself.



Why?

I enjoyed How My Summer Went Up in Flames so I am eagerly awaiting Ms. Doktorski's sophomore title.

Also, I have had the pleasure to interview her for Summer Lovin' Read-a-Thon happening NEXT WEEK!! Have you signed up yet? When prizes for tackling that summer reading TBR pile!!

  4. I think this sounds like a really fun read, plus I love the setting for it! I think reading a book set in a newspaper office will be really fun. And I can't wait to see your interview with the author next week!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW! :)

  5. That does look like a cute story. When I was a teen I briefly wanted to be a journalist and I wrote for our school paper so I'd probably enjoy this book. I haven't read How My Summer Went Up in Flames yet but I plan to.
