Waiting on Wednesday: 52 Reasons to Hate My Father

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and features books that we just can't wait to get our hands on!

52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody

From Goodreads:

"If she wants to receive her beloved trust fund, every week for the next year, seventeen-year-old Lexi Larrabee must take on a different low-income job. All 52 jobs have been carefully pre-selected by her father himself.

What Lexi doesn’t know is that each job was at one point held by one of world’s most influential people. The goal is to teach his daughter a few lessons about life, compassion, work ethic, and the value of a hard-earned dollar. If each of these jobs eventually led to wealth and success, at least one of them has to work for Lexi.

Left with no other choice, Lexi grudgingly sets off on her quest, each week being comically presented with a highly undesirable job. All of them are designed to turn Lexi into an entirely different person.

This one totally reminds me of the '80s movie "Maid to Order." Anyone seen that one? No?

Well, for your entertainment here is the trailer:

Oh, '80s movies. Anyway, so there's no fairy godmother in this book, but I still see some similarities from the description :D

Also, I'm not sure if she's finished high school or what, but it sounds like it might qualify as "new adult"!

What books are you waiting for?
