Waiting On Wednesday

Almost Perfect by Brian Katcher

"You only hurt the ones you love. "

Logan Witherspoon recently discovered that his girlfriend of three years cheated on him. But things start to look up when a new student breezes through the halls of his small-town high school. Sage Hendricks befriends Logan at a time when he no longer trusts or believes in people. Sage has been homeschooled for a number of years and her parents have forbidden her to date anyone, but she won't tell Logan why.

One day, Logan acts on his growing feelings for Sage. Moments later, he wishes he never had. Sage finally discloses her big secret: she's actually a boy. Enraged, frightened, and feeling betrayed, Logan lashes out at Sage and disowns her. But once Logan comes to terms with what happened, he reaches out to Sage in an attempt to understand her situation. But Logan has no idea how rocky the road back to friendship will be.

The first paragraph makes it sound like a book that’s been done tens of times (the small town and the new girl who hasn’t dated before) but then there’s the rather large twist. I don’t think I’ve read a book dealing with an even similar subject before (there might be one out there, I just don’t know of it) and I’m really interested to see what this book does with everything.

    I was thinking that but I never have seen the movie--maybe I'll have to before or after reading the book...
