Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I have started reading more YA novels lately and I'm finding that I really like them. I found this one while browsing on Goodreads:

Like Mandarin byKirsten Hubbard

It's hard to find beauty in the badlands of Washokey, Wyoming. Fourteen-year-old Grace Carpenter knows it's not her mother's pageant obsessions, or the cowboy dances and pickup trucks adored by her small-tow
n classmates. True beauty is wild girl Mandarin Ramey: seventeen, shameless and utterly carefree. Grace would give ANYTHING to be like Mandarin. When the two misfits are united for a project, they embark on an unlikely, explosive friendship, packed with nights spent skinny-dipping in the canal, liberating the town's animal-head trophies, and constantly searching for someplace magic. Grace even plays along when Mandarin suggests they make a pact to run away together. Blame it on the crazy-making wildwinds that plague their badlands town. But all too soon, Grace discovers Mandarin's unique beauty hides a girl who's troubled, broken and even dangerous. And no matter how hard Grace fights to keep the magic, even the best friendships can't withstand betrayal.
