Waiting on Wednesday (5) – Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton

“Waiting On” Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about
(created by Jill at Breaking The Spine.)

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very…different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

I love the sound of Darkness Becomes Her, Kelly Keaton first YA novel. Like, Nomansland, this story seems unique, unlike anything I’ve read before. February’s a long way away, so this will be a loooong wait!

Darkness Becomes Her will be released February 22nd, 2011.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
