Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it all out soon—she’ll be next.

Why I’m waiting…

The cover grabbed my attention right away, but the real clincher was the first three words of the blurb: Bones meets Fringe. Yeah, bring it on, baby! It’s been a while since I’ve set aside time for a mystery/thriller and I’m hoping this book rekindles my interest in the genre. I love that it’s in the YA category, too. If this book is anywhere near as good as I’m anticipating, Elle Cosimano could be dealing with her own stalker. 😉

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
