I Can't Wait for... Chemistry Lessons by Meredith Goldstein (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday)

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

(My apologies on this going up a little late, guys! This last week has been crazy so I hadn't scheduled this ahead and then today I was trying to read up on the new General Data Protection Regulation changes for subscribers and get emails out, which I'm still not done with, and tonight the kids had a school concert...)

This just sounds adorably cute! Sometimes I need a book just like this to relax to in between the intense fantasy, suspense, and end-of-the-world books. It's my pick this week...

Chemistry Lessons
By Meredith Goldstein
YA Contemporary
Paperback & ebook, 256 Pages
June 19th 2018 by HMH Books for Young Readers


From advice columnist Meredith Goldstein, a dazzling, romantic, and emotionally resonant YA debut about a teen science whiz in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who tries to crack the chemical equation for lasting love and instead wreaks havoc on herself and the boys in her life.

For seventeen-year-old Maya, the equation for happiness is simple: a dream internship at MIT + two new science nerd friends + a perfect boyfriend = one amazing summer. Then Whit dumps her out of the blue. Maya is miserable until she discovers that her scientist mother, before she died, was conducting research on manipulating pheromones to enhance human attraction. If Maya can finish her mother’s work, maybe she can get Whit back. But when her experiment creates chaos in her love life, she realizes that maybe love and loss can’t be understood using the scientific method. Can she learn to trust the unmeasurables of love and attraction instead?
