Kacey Barlow had no idea it would be this hard to get into grad school. Her well-to-do family has been attending UI for generations, and admissions had been recruiting her since high school! She was a shoo-in—that is, until they gave her the boot.

She can’t tell her parents, and can’t stand the thought of her friends going off to grad school without her. Her grades are slip

The Holy Terror
With so many self-published books out there these days, it's nice when your friends help you weed through them.

Maybe premature to put it on this shelf. But frankly, I don't care.
I don't want to write too long of a review on this book because it is such a struggle to write something negative. I agreed to read Waitlisted because it sounded like a book I could easily relate to, being a college student and having been in a similar situation as Kacey. I was very disappointed when the book turned out to have a main character I quickly hated and a story that could have been better written.

The writing was okay, but I felt was a bit choppy. There were some funny moments, but ove

What would you do if you had your life's plan all figured out, including the approved list for the dental school, and suddenly you find your self being told nada. Can't go. Laurel Gans captures that and so much more in this laugh out loud, humor filled, twists and turns at every corner, novel. She captured it and so much more with Kacey!

From page one, Kacey has your laughing your way through this novel. Her wittiness is addictive and her struggles are lifelike. Kacey, poor soul, gets told she's
Waitlisted by Laurel Gans

What would you do if you were in your senior year of college and everything had been going as planned…Then suddenly your plans make a slight adjustment?
Kasey Barlow is in the middle of her senior year of college and everything is on track, until she is called to see her advisor where she learns the program she had been preparing for since freshmen year would not be available to her anymore. What should Kasey do? Should she tell her parents that she will be unable to go

Laurel Gans is on tour with CLP Blog Tours. I was really curious to read Waitlisted, because the main character is a college student. I was a college student not too many years ago, and my MC in the book I published is the same age, so I thought it would be fun to see her mindset. Kacey Barlow has her well-planned life turned upside down when her college tells her they booted her from the grad school roster. Kacey thought her slot was already confirmed, but with too many students, UI was forced ...more
Kacey Barlow is in the middle of her senior year of college and is on track to go to dental school when she gets the call from her college advisor telling her she has been Waitlisted for the dental school she had planned to go to. She can’t tell her parents and definitely cannot tell her friends, as everyone thinks her plans are already set. Kacey then decides to take things into her own hands, but then has problems getting her studying done. Kacey and her roommate Natalie are both then trying t ...more

Waitlisted had me a little confused…I’m not sure if the main character, Kasy, is written in tongue-in-cheek or if her self-absorbed, oblivious, sense of entitlement is written without irony. Either way, I found Kasey a very difficult character to like and almost impossible to root for, but she had my curiosity peaked. As frustrating as I found her, I had to know whether things worked out for her or if she got her just desserts.

That being said, I did like the book. The supporting characters conti
