Waiting on Wednesday: THE KARMA CLUB (feat. a trailer)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine and it enables us to highlight the upcoming released we're looking forward to!
My this week's pick is THE KARMA CLUB by Jessica Brody, which comes out in April in the US (hardcover) and in June 2010 in the UK (paperback). Here's a quick summary:
Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. It’s that mysterious, powerful force that brings harmony to the universe. You know—do good things and you will be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what’s coming to you. A sort of cosmic balancing act.
But when Mason Brooks, Maddy’s boyfriend of two years, gets caught tongue-wrestling with Miss Perfect Body Heather Campbell, and absolutely nothing happens to either of them—except that they wind up the hot new couple of Colonial High School, it seems like Karma has officially left Maddy in the lurch. That’s why Maddy and her best friends, Angie and Jade, decide to start the Karma Club—a secret, members-only organization whose sole purpose is to clean up the messes that the universe has been leaving behind. Whether they’re modifying Heather Campbell’s acne cream as part of “Operation Butterface,” or righting a few wrongs when it comes to Angie and Jade’s own slimy exes, they know they’re just doing what Karma should have done in the first place. They’re taking care of one another.
Sometimes, though, it isn’t wise to meddle with the universe. Because it turns out, when you mess with Karma, Karma messes back. Now Maddy must find a way to balance her life for good, even as everything around her seems to be toppling to the ground.
Sounds rather cute, huh? Both the US and the UK covers have already been released - which one do you prefer? :)

The main reason why I decided to post about The Karma Club this week is because the trailer for the book has just been released and it looks great! I follow Jessica Brody on Twitter and she's been tweeting about it for weeks! I was really looking forward to seeing it and now I understand why the wait was so long - the trailer is like a mini clip from a film so obviously there was a lot of work to do, but it was all worth it as you can see below! :)

Woah, I'm kinda shocked by how GOOD this trailer is. Not that I'd read it since the plot summary reveals that this book isn't really my thing, but still, wow, nice trailer. =D

That trailer is amazing! Probably one of the best I've seen. And the book sounds like a cute read and I'll defiantly be picking it up at the bookstore when it comes out.

I can't WAIT for this. Love love LOVE the UK cover, too. Shame we have to wait until June though!

BTW, am not a fan of book trailers but I quite like this one! (It would make a FAB movie!)

Very cute! I will have to add it to my TBR pile. I am also very jealous that you are getting I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend soon. It looks really good. Thanks for the comment on my WoW.

UK cover is miles better!

Lauren said...

This is an amazing trailer. It's left me wanting to read the book, that's for sure.

I prefer the US cover, I have to say. But that's probably because I'm in the UK and I tend to want the cover I can't have.
