52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody
Hardcover, 335 pages
Expected publication: July 3rd 2012 by Farrar Straus & Giroux
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.This sounds like a really cute, awesome book! I love the premise of all the odd jobs she has to do in order to grow as a person. Plus, I LOVED Jessica's other book, My Life Undecided so I can't wait to see what she brings in this book :)
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.
What do you guys think about this one? Let me know what you guys are waiting for :)
