Waiting on Wednesday (40)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It highlights the books that we are most anxiously awaiting!

This week my WoW is.............

The Turning by Francine Prose 
Expected Release Date: September 25th, 2012 from HarperTeen

Check out this summary from Goodreads: Jack is babysitting for the summer on an isolated island with no Wi-Fi, no cell service, and no one else around but a housekeeper and two very peculiar children. He immediately senses something sinister-and it's not just the creepy black house he's living in. Soon he is feeling terribly isolated and alone, but then he discovers there are others. The problem is, he's the only who can see them. As secrets are revealed and darker truths surface, Jack desperately struggles to maintain a grip on reality. He knows what he sees, and he isn't crazy…Or is he?
 Creepy much? Glad this one comes out near the end of September, because it's going to be perfect for the annual Halloween event here on FCB!

What are y'all waiting on this lovely Summer Wednesday?

  15. That sounds so good! When I was a kid, I used to read ghost stories, and scary mysteries all the time. I think Goosebumps got me into them. Haven't read much of those lately, though. I'm adding this to my TBR list. Thank you for sharing - and thank you for stopping by my blog! :)
