Waiting on Wednesday #4

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

 This week, I'm waiting on a book that's LONG in coming. On the other hand, we're already in June, and it felt like just yesterday when we opened Christmas packages, so here's to hoping the time will pass quickly!

Damage by Anya Parrish

There was a time when I prayed for Rachel to be real. Until the night I learned she'd always planned to kill me. 

When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel . . . her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel wasn't real.
Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends Dani a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani.

Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood nemesis. Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their astral tormenters are back. Their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery—and the terrible experiment that binds them to each other.

I'm not crazy about the cover, and I hope they change it before the release, but how awesome does this story sound? I'm all excited about it, September can't come fast enough!

What are YOU waiting on?


  1. This SOUNDS so good, but I'm not crazy about the cover either!!

    My Wow Post!

  2. This sounds like such a cool plot idea, I can't wait to read it.

    Here's my WoW this week

  3. @BookishBrunette: I know, that cover is totally gross, ugh.

    @Brett: I love the idea. I've always loved the identical twin/imaginary friend/doppelganger storyline possibilities.

  4. I really like the sound of this book and I really like the cover.

    Here's my WoW.

  5. This does sound pretty good. I'd have to agree about the cover though, i tend to go for pretty covers (i know i should but i like pretty covers too much). Great pick.

  9. @Amy: I'm also shallow about covers. I mean, it's not that hard to make it look pretty, yeah?

    PeaceLove&Pat: Great to have you on-board, thanks for dropping by!

    @The Reading Geek: Thanks for commenting!

  10. I agree about the cover - it looks like they're implying a werewolf, but the summary doesn't indicate anything like that. Strange! Still, looks like a cool book!
