Waiting on Wednesday: The Dead and Buried


The Dead and Buried
Author: Kim Harrington
Publisher: Scholastic Point
Expected Publication: January 1, 2013

Synopsis:
A haunted house, a buried mystery, and a very angry ghost make this one unforgettable thriller.

Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . .

But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things.

Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.

Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house . . . is haunted.

Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets.

But is one of them a murderer?

My Thoughts: I am ridiculously excited for this book, my Mom loves haunted house and all things spooky so I grew up loving those same things. I'm looking forward to seeing how Harrington weaves the haunted house, ghost, and murderer plot lines together and I already want to learn more about what happened to this ghost girl who died only a year before Jade came to town!

  3. I saw this on NetGalley and avoided just because I don't like scary books. Just the cover gives me the creeps!

  8. Ahh I'm such a chicken! These kinds of books would probably have me buried under covers - ghosts are totally my weak spot when it comes to horror/mystery. Sounds great though if you're into spooky stuff :)
