Waiting on Wednesday: The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a feature hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine to feature yet-to-be-released books.


THE DEAD AND BURIED 
Kim Harrington 
Coming January 1st, 2013


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?. 

What do you do with declined ARCs from NetGalley? Turn them into Waiting on Wednesdays! This comes to you from my recent ghost obsession spurred by Jeannine Garsee’s The Unquiet. The set-up isn’t particularly different from your typical haunted house thriller, but I think that’s what drew me to it. It’s classic and simple. I’m looking for a solid ghost story and I hope to find it when this comes out next year. Forewarning: Don’t just google the title. Google the author too. Or you might find a creepy truCrime book instead. I’m scarred.
