"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:

Publication: April 5th 2011 by HarperTeen

Sixteen-year-old Tansy Piper moves with her grandfather and her mother, a horror writer, to the setting of her mother's next book--a secluded house outside of a tiny, desolate West Texas town. Lonely and upset over the move, Tansy escapes into her photography and the dark, seductive poems she finds hidden in the cellar, both of which lure her into the mind and world of a mysterious, troubled young man who died sixty years earlier.

"Tiny, desolate West Texas town..." was the first thing that drew me to this book.  Being from Texas, I love to read books with a Texas setting, but even more so because it is set in a small town.  I have always felt like I was born in the wrong place.  I'm more of a small town girl than a city girl.  The whole thing sounds a little creepy to me and that's intriguing!
