Wanting and Waiting on Wednesday Feb 24

This is a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. I've got THREE this week.  I've been avoiding doing other things by trolling for books on Amazon and BN.  (see Monday's post for proof!)  These three books come out in the month of March, and they look like good ones. 

Title: It's Raining Cupcakes
Author: Lisa Schroder
Released: March 9 by Aladdin Books
Why I'm Interested: It sounds like a fun read that would be perfect for my middle school girls

Summary From Amazon
Twelve-year-old isabel is dying to get out of Oregon. She spends her free time in the library, reading and dreaming about faraway places. When her mom decides to open a cupcake shop in their little town of Willow, Isabel feels just like buttercream frosting to a cupcake - stuck.

It seems as if it will be another disappointing summer, until Isabel learns of a baking contest. If she can come up with a winning recipe, she might have a chance of competing in the bake-off in New York City!
 But Isabel's best friend, Sophie, is also entering the contes and things always seem to go Sophie's way. To make matters worse, Isabel and her mom don't exactly see eye to eye on the type of recipe Isabel should enter.

In this sweet treat by popular teen author Lisa Schroeder, Isabel discovers that maybe it's not about where you go in life as much as it is about enjoying the view from wherever you are.

Title: Addicted to Her
Author: Janet Nichols Lynch
Released: March 15 by Holiday House
Why I'm Interested: I like that it's about a boy.  I find very few of books with lead boy characters.

Summary from Amazon
Monique is as beautiful and unobtainable as an Aztec goddess. Or is she? When Rafa sees Monique burst out of her boyfriend's truck during an explosive fight, he offers to drive her home. However, it is Rafa who is in for the ride of his life. Soon he is basking in Monique's attentions, but at a cost. To keep her Rafa must quit the wrestling team, blow off family responsibilities, join her in her risky behavior, and worst of all lie. How can Rafa let everyone, including himself, down? But how can he say no to the mesmerizing Monique?

Title: Unwritten Rule
Author: Elizabeth Scott
Released: March 16 by Simon Pulse
Why I'm Interested: Haven't we all been there????

Summary from Goodreads:
Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...
