Waiting On...

Title: Once Upon a Kiss
Author: Robin Palmer
Publisher: Speak
Publication Date: January 5, 2016
So much has happened since 1986, and Zoe Brenner is about to find out just how much.

From the author of the book that inspired the Disney original movie Geek Charming!
It's 1986 and sixteen-year-old Zoe Brenner's world revolves around Depeche Mode, Judd Nelson, exercise-obsessed parents, and her best friend Jonah. Then one day, in a freak Fun-Dip choking accident, Zoe falls unconscious, and awakes in the year 2016. So much has changed, and Zoe needs Jonah to help her make sense of it all. But in this life, Zoe is the most popular girl in school, and she soon realizes this Zoe doesn't associate with nerds like Jonah. As Zoe juggles new technology, attempts to hide her enthusiasm for poet blouses, and manages to keep her super jock boyfriend at bay, she tries to rekindle her friendship with Jonah and use her popularity for a good cause. Will she ever get back to 1986? And more importantly, does she want to? 

Why I'm Waiting...

Okay... I don't know if many of you realize this, but I kind of have a thing for the 1980s! I even have a shelf on Goodreads dedicated to books that take place in the 1980s. So when I found out that the main character, Zoe, from Once Upon a Kiss is a teenager from the 80s, I knew I had to read this book.

The whole book just looks like it's going to be hilarious. 80s. Fun Dip. A coma that leads Zoe to current times.  Yeah... I'm totally reading this book! I just hope it's as funny as I'm thinking that it's going to be.
