Waiting For You by Susane Colasanti

At the beginning of her sophomore year, Marisa is ready for a fresh start and, more importantly, a boyfriend. So when the handsome and popular Derek asks her out, Marisa thinks her long wait for happiness is over. But several bumps in the road—including her parents’ unexpected separation, a fight with her best friend, and a shocking disappointment in her relationship with Derek—test Marisa’s ability to maintain her new outlook. Only the anonymous DJ, whose underground podcasts have the school’s ear, seems to understand what Marisa is going through. But she has no idea who he is—or does she?

This is one of these books where you get sucked in and can't stop reading it. It was cute, smart and funny. Yes, it was predictable, but thats what made the story work all together. The cover really portrays the characters. The anonymous DJ is so obvious. At first, you dont really know and keep guessing but once you get to a certain point in the book, everything just clicks, and it was like Marisa had to go through everything she went through to get where she is. It was very realistic and you could relate to this story, and it is a must-read for anyone. x.
