Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Shadow Hills - Anastasia Hopcus
*July 13th, 2010 EgmontUSA
His love captivated her... his secrets might kill her.

Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.

After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all.

But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life.
There's something really cool about the simplicity and color-contrast of the cover. Persephone makes me think of the mythology attached, and "Phe" is a pretty cool nickname. Not one you see over and over again in YA these days.

If you haven't already, be sure to check out Anastasia Hopcus' website -
the animation/graphics are quite well done. So far, Shadow Hills has been generating a ton of pretty positive buzz.

And there you have it - my pick for this Wednesday. What about you, what're you waiting on this Wednesday?
