Waiting On Wednesday: Chasing The Skip

Chasing The Skip
Author: Janci Patterson
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co. (BYR)
Expected Publication: October 2, 2012

Ricki’s dad has never been there for her. He’s a bounty hunter who spends his time chasing parole evaders—also known as “skips”—all over the country. But now since Ricki’s mom ran off, Ricki finds herself an unwilling passenger in a front-row seat to her father’s dangerous lifestyle.

Ricki’s feelings get even more confused when her dad starts chasing seventeen-year-old Ian Burnham. She finds herself unavoidably attracted to the dark-eyed felon who seems eager to get acquainted. But Ricki thinks she’s ever in control—the perfect manipulator. Little does she know that Ian isn’t playing their game by her rules.

My Thoughts: 
I think the whole premise of this book sounds interesting. I mean a bounty hunter whose daughter falls in love the with person he is hunting, it isn't something I've ever read in the YA genre and I think it is different enough from the Stephanie Plum series that I won't compare the two books. Also I really like that cover with the handcuff and font, its simplistic but I think it says a lot. So what are you Waiting on this Wednesday?!
