Waiting on Wednesday: The Last Academy by Anne Applegate

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It is an opportunity for us to show books we can't wait to get our hands on.

This week, my pick is:



The Last Academy by Anne Applegate
Release Date: May 1st, 2013
Publisher: Point


Curtis Sittenfeld's PREP meets THE SIXTH SENSE in this spine-tingling, unforgettable debut. 

Camden Fisher arrives at boarding school haunted by a falling-out with her best friend back home. But the manicured grounds of Lethe Academy are like nothing Cam has ever known. There are gorgeous, preppy boys wielding tennis rackets, and circles of girls with secrets to spare. Only . . . something is not quite right. One of Cam's new friends mysteriously disappears, but the teachers don't seem too concerned. Cam wakes up to strangers in her room, who then melt into the night. She is suddenly plagued by odd memories, and senses there might be something dark and terrible brewing. But what? The answer will leave Cam--and readers--stunned and breathless, in this thrilling debut novel.

What book are you waiting for this week?

Not abounding stocks, gold, bonds or absolute acreage accept such a performance. Thus abounding added affluent access the replica watches uk, diamond, car and art bazaar authoritative huge profits. Partly because money is not accompany annihilation at the coffer but alone because attenuate iconic architecture in abundant action has been accurate to be a save investment in asperous times. Museums for instance about the apple are badly popular, answer the accent of replica watches their curated rarities to the public.
