"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My pick for the Week:
Past Midnight, by Mara Purnhagen
Release Date: Sep 1, 2010 by Harlequin Teen
Let me set the record straight. My name is Charlotte Silver and I'm not one of those paranormal-obsessed freaks you see on TV…no, those would be my parents, who have their own ghost-hunting reality show. And while I'm usually roped into the behind-the-scenes work, it turns out that I haven't gone unnoticed. Something happened on my parents' research trip in Charleston—and now I'm being stalked by some truly frightening other beings. Trying to fit into a new school and keeping my parents' creepy occupation a secret from my friends—and potential boyfriends—is hard enough without having angry spirits whispering in my ear. All I ever wanted was to be normal, but with ghosts of my past and present colliding, now I just want to make it out of high school alive….
There were quite a few titles I had in mind for this week's WoW post. Today, I ran across Past Midnight on a list of upcoming YA releases, and read the sneak peak on Amazon's website. I was immediately drawn in by the writing style, and decided this is one I have to read!
