Review: Waitlisted by Laurel Gans

Kacey Barlow is in the middle of her senior year of college and is on track to go to dental school when she gets the call from her college advisor telling her she has been Waitlisted for the dental school she had planned to go to.  She can’t tell her parents and definitely cannot tell her friends, as everyone thinks her plans are already set.  Kacey then decides to take things into her own hands, but then has problems getting her studying done. Kacey and her roommate Natalie are both then trying to get into dental school without being on the waiting list. 

I laughed out loud while reading this book.  But also got frustrated with Kacey, due to her laziness.  I felt more connected to Kacey's roommate, Natalie, and found myself rooting for her more than Kacey.  I loved how the story played out however, especially the ending of the book. 

This was a very fast, easy read but I thought it read more as a Youth Adult book than a Chick-Lit book.  I give this a 3 star rating. 

Book Description

 October 4, 2011
Kacey Barlow had no idea it would be this hard to get into grad school. Her well-to-do family has been attending UI for generations, and admissions had been recruiting her since high school! She was a shoo-in—that is, until they gave her the boot.

She can’t tell her parents, and can’t stand the thought of her friends going off to grad school without her. Her grades are slipping. Her professors can’t remember her name, and her tutor, Taylor, won’t stop hitting on her when they’re supposed to be studying.

Okay, maybe that last one isn’t so bad. But it’s not going to help get her a seat in another school...and applications are due in two weeks...
