"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
by Julie Hearn
release date: March 2011 by OUP Oxford (*see note below!)
The lid gave, eventually, with surprisingly little noise. Nothing splintered. Nothing broke. No hinges flew, or even creaked, and for a second or two nothing happened at all. Then came the first scream. It blew out a candle, that scream ...'Shut the lid! For the love of God ...SHUT THE LID!' And so the box was slammed shut, hidden away, and forgotten about. But what lay within was only dormant ...waiting for the time when it would be released, and let loose upon the world. And that time was about to come ...That time is now.
This fantastic new novel from acclaimed writer, Julie Hearn, is truly unique and tells of friendship, secrets, love, hate and hope.
My thoughts: *Okay, so it says this one is already out, BUT I think it's only out in the UK and I'm unable to get it on BookDepository---so technically, I'm still waiting for this one! :D That counts, right? But doesn't it sound amazing? From what I've read, its set in the future--- about five friends who spend the night in an old creepy house on Halloween and find something hidden in the walls (pandora's box, maybe?). Sounds a bit creepy! I need to track this down! :)
