"Waiting On" Wednesday - Guardian of the Dead

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Guardian of the Dead
by Karen Healey
Publication Date: April 1st 2010 by Little Brown and Company

In less than a day I had been harassed, enchanted, shouted at, cried on, and clawed. I’d been cold, scared, dirty, exhausted, hungry, and miserable. And up until now, I’d been mildly impressed with my ability to cope.

At her boarding school in New Zealand, Ellie Spencer is like any ordinary teen: she hangs out with her best friend, Kevin; obsesses over her crush on a mysterious boy; and her biggest worry is her paper deadline. Then everything changes: In the foggy woods near the school, something ancient and deadly is waiting.

I have been seeing this title pop up around the blogosphere and the hype alone has me wanting to read it.  Plus, it's published by Little Brown, which I haven't read a book by them I didn't like, so I'm anxious to get my hands on this one!

The cover freaks me out a little
