Waiting on Wednesday

Title: Not That Kind of Girl 
Author: Siobhan Vivian
Pub/Date: 11/2010 by Push
Plot Summary (GoodReads):
Natalie Sterling wants to be in control. She wants her friends to be loyal. She wants her classmates to elect her student council president. She wants to find the right guy, not the usual jerk her school has to offer. She wants a good reputation, because she believes that will lead to good things.

But life is messy, and it's very hard to be in control of it. Not when there are freshman girls running around in a pack, trying to get senior guys to sleep with them. Not when your friends have secrets they're no longer comfortable sharing. Not when the boy you once dismissed ends up being the boy you wants to sleep with yourself - but only in secret, with nobody ever finding out.
Slut or saint? Winner or loser? Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices - and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between.

I love the plot summary of NOT THAT KIND OF GIRL! I'm very interested in the romantic elements - as usual - but I'm also interested in the secret slash hidden desire elements as well. I love books that delve into the high school stereotypes and undercover who characters - and people - really are. Can't wait until September to read this one!
