"Waiting On" Wednesday #10


"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release (or releases) that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week:

The Vanishing Game
By: Kate Kae Myers
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Release Date: February 14, 2012

From Goodreads:

Jocelyn’s twin brother Jack was the only family she had growing up in a world of foster homes – and now he’s dead, and she has nothing. Then she gets a cryptic letter from “Jason December”  - the code name her brother used when they were children at Seale House, a terrifying foster home that they believed had dark powers. Only one other person knows about Jason December: Noah, Jocelyn’s childhood crush and their only real friend among the troubled children at Seale House.

But when Jocelyn returns to Seale House and the city where she last saw Noah, she gets more than she bargained for. Turns out the house’s powers weren’t just a figment of a childish imagination. And someone is following Jocelyn. Is Jack still alive? And if he is, what kind of trouble is he in? The answer is revealed in a shocking twist that turns this story on its head and will send readers straight back to page 1 to read the book in a whole new light.

Looks cool, right? The idea of the foster home kind of reminds me of the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong, but I feel like this one has the potential to be better. Plus, Holly Black has it on her to-read list, which is good enough for me! :) I also really like the cover. It took me looking at it several times to figure out that it shows the reflection of the house. Ha.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
