This week I'm wishing for...

Red by Alison Cherry 


Summary from Goodreads:

"Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.

Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:

I know your secret.

Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.
Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?"

Why I'm Wishing for It:
I find the premise of this book hilarious. A town where red-heads are revered, held in a higher opinion than everyone else. Being a red-head myself, I just find it so, so funny. Which, of course, means I have to read it. I have to read about a fictional town that adores all natural red-heads, just to give myself an ego boost. Moving past that, I'm sure this is an interesting mystery and I've seen some good reviews. Definitely something I'm wishing for. 

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?
