Waiting for Wednesday

This meme is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and lets you know which books we can't wait to be published. There are so many great books that will be published this Fall but this week I want to talk about The Hollow by Jessica Verday.

Cover copy says: When Abbey's best friend, Kristen, vanishes at the bridge near Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, everyone else is all too quick to accept that Kristen is dead and rumors fly that her death was no accident. Abbey goes through the motions of mourning her best friend, but privately, she refuses to believe that Kristen is really gone. Then she meets Caspian, the gorgeous and mysterious boy who shows up out of nowhere at Kristen's funeral, and keeps reappearing in Abbey's life. Caspian clearly has secrets of his own, but he's the only person who makes Abbey feel normal again...but also special.

Just when Abbey starts to feel that she might survive all this, she learns a secret that makes her question everything she thought she knew about her best friend. How could Kristen have kept silent about so much? And could this secret have led to her death? As Abbey struggles to understand Kristen's betrayal, she uncovers a frightening truth that nearly unravels her — one that will challenge her emerging love for Caspian, as well as her own sanity.

Oh, it sounds so good, it has a GREAT cover, and you can read the first chapter here (thanks Jessica!)

You can find out more about Jessica Verday at her website here and can sign up here for a goodies package. But oh, waiting is never easy...

Loved the first chapter! And Jessica's kind enough to send out promo packets with *TEMPORARY TATTOOS* and other great stuff. I can't wait for this book.
