Trixie Watson has two very important goals for senior year: to finally save enough to buy the set of Doctor Who figurines at the local comic books store, and to place third in her class and knock Ben West–and his horrendous new mustache that he spent all summer growing–down to number four.

Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben’s, including give up sleep and comic books–well, maybe not comic books–but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade. Over a decade later, it’s time to declare a champion once and for all.

The war is Trixie’s for the winning, until her best friend starts dating Ben’s best friend and the two are unceremoniously dumped together and told to play nice. Finding common ground is odious and tooth-pullingly-painful, but Trixie and Ben’s cautious truce slowly transforms into a fandom-based tentative friendship. When Trixie’s best friend gets expelled for cheating and Trixie cries foul play, however, they have to choose who to believe and which side they’re on–and they might not pick the same side.


Why Am I Waiting?

I love YA Contemporary, so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. Plus, the main characters are Whovians. There’s no way that that isn’t cool. What can I say, I love fandoms. What book are you waiting on this week?

  1. I love the idea of competitive fun that this one can be and I am a HUGE fan of Doctor Who so seeing it mentioned so much in the synopsis has me very excited as well. It looks like geekiness heaven to be honest :3


  2. This one looks super cute! I have been struggling with YA contemporary lately, but I’m looking forward to this one.
    Hope it lives up to your expectations, Lekeisha! 🙂
