Waiting on Wednesday (162)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Trouble is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
Release date: August 4, 2015

Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in this story of a wisecracking girl who meets a weird but brilliant boy and their roller-coaster of a semester that’s one part awkward, three parts thrilling, and five parts awesome

When Philip Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude and he treats her like a book he's already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Digby--annoying, brilliant and somehow attractive?--has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago.

When it comes to Digby, Zoe just can't say no. Digby gets her, even though she barely gets herself. But is Digby a hero, or is his manic quest an indication of a desperate attempt to repair his broken family and exercise his own obsessive compulsive tendencies? 

A romance where the leading man is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, a friendship story where they aren't even sure they like each other--this is a contemporary debut with razor-sharp dialogue, ridiculously funny action, and the most charismatic dynamic duo you've ever met.

So this book has a lot to live up to if it wants to be "Sherlock meets Veronica Mars meets Ferris Beuller's Day Off" but the reviews I've read by Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal were pretty positive so I'm willing to give it a try!


  1. Ha! How can one resist that pitch? I'm adding it to my list!

  6. I just heard of this one yesterday! It sounds great and I had to add it to my wishlist right away. :)

  7. Sherlock, Veronica Mars, and Ferris Beuller? Sounds good to me!

  8. I can't wait to read this one, it looks and sounds so fun. But yea, it's got to be great to live up to those comparisons!
