Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

My pick this week:
Death and the Girl Next Door
                                    Darynda Jones
                                    Release date: October, 2012
by St. Martin's Press

Things get turned upside down for sophomore Lorelei MacAlister when the Angel of Death starts high school in her small town. What she doesn’t know is that she has been slated to die. It’s simply her time. And Death has been sent to do the deed. But when she touches him, when she peers into his eyes and reaches into his heart, he realizes she is more than what he was led to believe, and he disobeys his orders. He brings her back from the brink of death when he was supposed to push her into it. Because of this, he gets trapped on this plane. And that’s when all hell breaks loose. Literally. 

Darynda is the author of a fabulous and hilarious adult Urban Fantasy series - Charley Davidson - which I adore, so when I saw her cover reveal Facebook post for this new YA series, I was ecstatic! I just know this is going to be kick-ass!

Which book did you pick this week?
