Waiting on Wednesday

"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.

The Suburban Strange
by Nathan Kotecki

hitting shelves October 2, 2012 from Houghton Mifflin

Shy Celia Balaustine is befriended by a mysterious group of outliers called The Rosary at her new school, Suburban High. The Rosary exposes Celia to new experiences and ideas that help her break out of her shell. Soon though, Celia discovers something is not quite right at Suburban. Girls at the school begin having near fatal accidents on the eve of their sixteenth birthdays. Who is causing the accidents and why? Celia's own sixteenth birthday is fast approaching and she is inexorably drawn into an underground conflict between good and evil—the Kind and the Unkind—that is bubbling beneath Suburban High.

My thoughts: Suburban Strange sounds completely bizarre and eerie, so it's definitely one I'll be checking out! Plus--cover is awesome!! Love the swirls, the darkness, all the textures and the people just standing around in front of the school. Beautiful!
