Going Off Script by Jen Wilde

Going Off-Script

It is expected to be released on May 21, 2019, by Swoon Reads.

Sadly, I haven’t read any of her books and I have featured her books such as Queens of Geek and The Brightsiders on my Waiting on Wednesday posts. *smack* My small goal this year, since I am planning on reading mostly backlist books – Jen Wilde’s books will be one of them. Can’t wait. Anyway, I think I am mostly liking going to like this one because it’s about an internship for a TV show… sounds awesome. Anything could happen!

I also think this cover is my favorite out of her other books. I love how the chair and typography nests really close to the background, and the author’s name is on the chair like she’s the star! I love that! That’s very clever.

What do you think? Are you excited about the book?

A writer’s room intern must join forces with her crush to keep her favorite television show from ruining a lesbian character in this fun diverse contemporary YA romance from the author of Queens of Geek.

Seventeen-year-old Bex is thrilled when she gets an internship on her favorite tv show, Silver Falls. Unfortunately, the internship isn’t quite what she expected… instead of sitting in a crowded writer’s room volleying ideas back and forth, Production Interns are stuck picking up the coffee.

Determined to prove her worth as a writer, Bex drafts her own script and shares it with the head writer — who promptly reworks it and passes it off as his own! Bex is understandably furious, yet… maybe this is just how the industry works? But when they rewrite her proudly lesbian character as straight, that’s the last straw! It’s time for Bex and her crush to fight back.

Jen Wilde’s newest novel is both a fun, diverse love story and a very relevant, modern take on the portrayal of LGBT characters in media.
