"Harper Anderson always believed she belonged somewhere more glamorous than her sleepy Northern California suburb. After all, how many water polo matches and lame parties in Bobby McKittrick's backyard can one girl take? That's why Harper is beyond ecstatic when she lands her dream internship as a dating blogger at the elite teen magazine Shift. Getting to spend the summer in New York City to live her dream of becoming a writer? Harper's totally in.

There's just one teeny, tiny, infinitesimal problem: Apart from some dance floor make-outs, Harper doesn't have a lot of - or, really, any - dating expertise. In fact, she might have sort of stolen her best friend's experiences as her own on her Shiftapplication. But she can learn on the job...right?

From awkward run-ins with the cute neighborhood dog-walker to terrifying encounters with her crazed editor, from Brooklyn gallery openings to weekends in the Hamptons, Harper finds out what it takes to make it in the Big City--and as the writer of her own destiny."

Is there anything special about this book that you are looking forward to?
I think I pretty much answered this question through my answers to the following questions (I love to work backwards!). I just think that the synopsis is extremely unique and I can't help but relate to Harper, because I too have giant ambitions & huge dreams. 

How did you hear of this book? From a Goodreads Search, Blogger Buddies, Twitter, etc.?
To my memory, I believe I first saw this book floating around Twitter. I saw the cover & title and I instantly wanted to learn more. I think I learned about this book when I was on a trip to Boston (though I'm not entirely sure) and I honestly think that some of the "oh-my-goodness-I'm-away-from-home-and-enjoying-life-magic" rubbed off on this book. I can't help but remember that trip every time I look at this book, and it just makes my heart feel full, even if my trip has absolutely nothing to do with the plot of the story! 

Have you read any of the author's works before?
This is her debut book! 

What do you think about the cover? What about the title?
Everything about it pulled me in straight away. The synopsis was intriguing, the cover is absolutely gorgeous, and the title has me guessing already. I would love to have an internship at a publishing company - I know, it's not a magazine like Shift - and I just can't help but imagine myself in Harper's shoes, even if her story has to do a little bit more with romance and mine has to do with books (though I am okay with that!).

When is the release date for this book? Do you think you can wait that long to read it?
This book actually came out yesterday, but due to some difficulties, I wasn't able to post this last week! Of course I can wait that long to read it because it is already out! In fact, I'm going to the bookstore right now. :)

What do you think of this week's pick? What are you waiting on? Let me know in the comments below!
