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 Dead and Buried
by Kim Harrington

hitting shelves January 1st, 2012 from Scholastic Point

A haunted house, a buried mystery, and a very angry ghost make this one unforgettable thriller.
Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . .
But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things.
Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.
Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house . . . is haunted.
Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets.
But is one of them a murderer?

My thoughts: I love Kim Harrington's Clarity series and this looks like something I will enjoy as well!! A haunted house, a mysterious murder...and I love the creepy cover! It's too bad this one isn't coming out a few months earlier---seems like it would be a perfect Halloween read!

  12. I'm not usually a ghost/haunted house fan, but this one does have a certain appeal. I like the idea that the protagonist loves the house, and only then gets pulled in. Great pick!
