Waiting on Wednesday: How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True by Sarah Strohmeyer

How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True
Like Meg Cabot, Sarah Strohmeyer has a gift for creating smart, funny girls teen readers love. She’s done it again with Zoe, heroine of her latest romcom.
In YA novel How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True, Zoe learns there is a dark core under the glittering façade of the fairy-tale themed amusement park (cough, Disneyland, cough) where she’s a summer intern. For starters, her boss has a blacker heart than Snow White’s stepmother, and the other interns are worse backstabbers than Cinderella’s step-sisters.
On the upside, she has the chance of romance with a real-life Prince Charming, and a shot at winning a big heap of cash. If she can just live through a summer in the Fairyland Kingdom.

My favorite contemporary for 2012 was Smart Girls Get What They Want, so I am super excited to read Sarah Strohmeyer's other book! I love the idea of the main character having a summer job at an amusement park What are you waiting on? :)


  1. I enjoyed Meg's books when I was younger. Lately I haven't read any of them. So I might try with this one :) Great pick :)

    Here is our WOW

  2. Thanks! I'm so glad you liked Smart Girls and thanks very very much for mentioning Zoe. However, I just want to point out that while this book is set in a fantasy theme park, um, it's NOT Disney. (This is me talking to the lawyer behind my back glaring at me over his glasses.) In fact, it's kinda like the anti-Disneyland.


    Guess I better ask them to rewrite the ad copy on this, huh?

    Okay. Over and out - Sarah

  3. I think this one sounds super cute. I haven't read Smart Girls Get What They Want but I've heard such good things about it. Great WoW pick!

  4. Ooh yes, I really enjoyed Smart Girls, so this one will definitely have to go on my list. Sounds good!!

  5. Ooh, I'm very excited to read this one! Great choice!
