Waiting on Wednesday - Just Girls by Rachel Gold

Wow, it's been ages since I've done a "Waiting On" Wednesday spotlight post, but it's nice to have a title worth looking forward to! For those of you unfamiliar with the meme, WOW is for upcoming releases that everyone's excited about (created by Jill at Breaking The Spine

What we're excited about this week is Just Girls by Rachel Gold (her follow-up to Being Emily), coming September 16th:

Jess Tucker sticks her neck out for a stranger—the buzz is someone in the dorm is a trans girl. So Tucker says it’s her, even though it’s not, to stop the finger pointing. She was an out lesbian in high school, and she figures she can stare down whatever gets thrown her way in college. It can’t be that bad.

Ella Ramsey is making new friends at Freytag College, playing with on-campus gamers and enjoying her first year, but she’s rocked by the sight of a slur painted on someone else’s door. A slur clearly meant for her, if they’d only known.

New rules, old prejudices, personal courage, private fear. In this stunning follow-up to the groundbreaking Being Emily, Rachel Gold explores the brave, changing landscape where young women try to be Just Girls.

How about you? What are you waiting for?
