Wish List Wednesday, the First

Yes, this is my first Wish List Wednesday. And on this, my inaugural post for what might become regular participation in this meme, I offer you a first look at...
Second Kiss
A Novel
by Natalie Palmer
 "Even my most humiliating moments seemed funny somehow when I told them to Jess."

Gemma Mitchell is a normal girl who somehow gets herself into abnormally embarrassing circumstances. And while she thinks she's the biggest loser in school because of them, there are a few people in her life who would disagree. One of those people is her best friend, Jess Tyler, who is opposite to her in every way. He's popular, good looking, athletic, and intelligent, and he can't get enough of Gemma. But while Gemma is dealing with problems like wrong locker combinations and Valentine's Day dances, Jess is living in a world of serious issues that are foreign to Gemma, until she realizes that he's holding on to her for dear life.

Humorous and true to life, Second Kiss is an entertaining saga about a boy and girl who find that their lives have a lot more meaning once they have shared them with each other."
Why? It sounds like it has a lot of depth and humor, and I'm loving the relationship between Gemma and Jess, or at least what I think it is from the bit I gathered from the synopsis. The story just sounds really good. Also, I'm a big fan of the name Gemma. ;)
This debut sounds like it has a lot of potential to be be one of my top reads of the year; I just have a good feeling about it, you know?
And that's why it's on my wish list!
