Waiting on Wednesday: You Look Different in Real Life by Jennifer Castle

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
You Look Different in Real Life by Jennifer Castle.
Publication Date: June 4th 2013.


You Look Different in Real Life - Harper Teen

The premise was simple: five kids, just living their lives. There’d be a new movie about them every five years, starting in kindergarten. But no one could have predicted what the cameras would capture. And no one could have predicted that Justine would be the star. Now sixteen, Justine doesn’t feel like a star anymore. In fact, when she hears the crew has gotten the green light to film "Five at Sixteen," all she feels is dread. The kids who shared the same table in kindergarten have become teenagers who hardly know one another. And Justine, who was so funny and edgy in the first two movies, just feels like a disappointment. But these teens have a bond that goes deeper than what’s on film. They’ve all shared the painful details of their lives with countless viewers. They all know how it feels to have fans as well as friends. So when this latest movie gives them the chance to reunite, Justine and her costars are going to take it. Because sometimes, the only way to see yourself is through someone else’s eyes.
Synopsis from goodreads.com

There are so many times when I’m ridiculously happy that my childhood was only captured in not-so-high-quality home videos and photos. And that it’s definitely not available online. But to imagine that it was not only preserved for posterity, but made into feature films ... so basically the Olsen-Twins and Full House ... yep, still thankful. I think this will be quite an interesting read and I hope that it will go a little deeper than the careful-what-you-share-in-public warnings.

Share your Waiting on Wednesday in the comments. And your worst childhood mishap in video (just kidding).
