(from Goodreads)
The good girl, the bad boy, the diva, the hustler, the rock star, and the nerd. Six teens legally liberated from parental control for six different reasons, all with one thing in common: something to hide.

Now they’re sharing a house in Venice Beach, acting like a family, and living their lies. No parents. No limits. No alibis. One witnessed a crime, another might be a murderer—and one’s been spying on them all.

As they cling to a fantasy of freedom and slowly let down their guards, the past creeps up on them. And when one of them gets arrested, everyone’s carefully constructed facade comes crumbling down.

In this steamy, drama-filled series, relationships are tested and secrets revealed as lies threaten to destroy their perfect setup.


Why I'm Waiting
  •  Set in Venice Beach
  • Idea of teens living on their own - each for different reasons and each with their own story to tell
  • Story is told in multiple points of view
  • It's contemporary YA
  • And I like the cover
What are you waiting on this week?
