Waiting On Wednesday: Week 43

My pick this week is:

Claim To Fame by Margaret Peterson Haddix

It was a talent that came out of nowhere. One day, Lindsay Scott was on the top of the world, the child star of a hit TV show. The next day her fame had turned into torture. Every time anyone said anything about her, anywhere in the world, she heard it: praise, criticism, back-stabbing… Lindsay had what looked like a nervous breakdown and vanished from the public eye. Now she’s sixteen, and a tabloid newspaper claims that her own father is holding her hostage. The truth is much stranger, but that tabloid article sets off a chain of events that forces Lindsay to finally confront who she really is.

My Thoughts:

That would be such an awful thing to hear everything people said about you, don't you think? Though, it does still make for a good book idea, making Claim To Fame a book to read in my opinion. :) Though, I'm not the biggest fan of the cover.

Claim To Fame will be released November 10, 2009.


  1. That would be torture! Like I (or anyone) really needs to know when is badmouthing them!

    This book definitely sounds interesting and it's going on my must-have list. :)

  2. I like the sound of this, but like you, I'm not keen on the cover. Great pick!

  3. I'm a Haddix fan. I knew the second in her new series was out, but I didn't know she had something else coming out. Thanks for the information.


  4. Thanks for sharing this! I didn't know she had another book coming out beyond her Missing series. I'll be sharing this with my students for sure.

  5. I <333 MPH's books. My favorite was Double Identity. Really looking forward to reading this.


I love comments so never be afraid to leave one!
