Waiting on Wednesday: Cure for the Common Universe by Christian McKay Heidicker

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Jenn's Pick- I Can't wait for:

Cure for the Common Universe
Cure for the Common Universe by Christian McKay Heidicker
Sixteen-year-old Jaxon is being committed to video game rehab . . .  
ten minutes after he met a girl. A living, breathing girl named Serena, who not only laughed at his jokes but actually kinda sorta seemed excited when she agreed to go out with him.

Jaxon's first date. Ever.

In rehab, he can't blast his way through galaxies to reach her. He can't slash through armies to kiss her sweet lips. Instead, he has just four days to earn one million points by learning real-life skills. And he'll do whatever it takes—lie, cheat, steal, even learn how to cross-stitch—in order to make it to his date.

If all else fails, Jaxon will have to bare his soul to the other teens in treatment, confront his mother's absence, and maybe admit that it's more than video games that stand in the way of a real connection.

Prepare to be cured.

The geek in me is calling out for this book now. I ran into it on Goodreads the other day and I can't stop thinking about it. I want it now. It looks like just the type of book I will totally get and love.
