"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. Though someday I need to change the title that I post this under---I almost never post it on Wednesday! :D

hitting shelves August 2015 from Simon & Schuster
description: Stella Cambren is the lucky one. When she was a kid, Stella and her friend Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella came back without any memory of what happened. Jeanie never did.
Eleven years later, Stella is over it—mostly. She can’t remember a time when people didn’t look at her with a question in their eyes. But she has a summer full of cove days ahead of her, a best friend with a devil-may-care attitude, and a maybe-crush on a gorgeous, popular guy. All Stella wants is to have the best summer of her life. Jeanie’s fate is lost in the black hole of her mind. It’s nothing but the past.
That is, until the fresh corpse of a little girl is found, one with eerie similarities to Jeanie, and Stella’s memories start coming back in fits and starts. As Stella begins to uncover the truth about the day Jeanie vanished, she discovers a bread crumb trail of disappearances going back generations.
Stella thinks remembering what happened to Jeanie will save her. It won’t.
She used to know better than to believe in what slinks through the shadows. Not anymore.
And before the summer is over, Stella will learn that if you hunt for monsters, you’ll find them.
My thoughts: Okay, I know it's incredibly early to be featuring this one, its a REALLY long wait until August, but this book has such a perfectly spooky cover, I had to show it off during the month of October! The description gives me the creeps.
