3 1/2 stars.

I really connected with this high school setting. A lot of the books that I read that are set in high school make me think, "Is this really what high school is like now?" So I enjoyed relating to this experience and these characters.

Marisa is starting off a new school year wanting to reinvent herself and be someone new. The problem is, it's high school and that doesn't usually work very well. She's got a total crush on a guy that seems unattainable and is worried that her uncool childhood friend has a crush on her. And throughout the story, Marisa is waiting . . . for real life to start, for something exciting to happen, for her secret crush to notice how great she is, for a first boyfriend, for her first kiss . . .

WAITING FOR YOU is a great story about appreciating what is right in front of you instead of waiting for the next best thing that may not happen or may not be better than what you already have.
