Waiting on Wednesday (46) — The Vanishing Game by Kate Kae Myers

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

The Vanishing Game

Jocelyn’s twin brother Jack was the only family she had growing up in a world of foster homes—and now he’s dead, and she has nothing. Then she gets a cryptic letter from “Jason December”—the code name her brother used to use when they were children at Seale House, a terrifying foster home that they believed had dark powers. Only one other person knows about Jason December: Noah, Jocelyn’s childhood crush and their only real friend among the troubled children at Seale House.
But when Jocelyn returns to Seale House and the city where she last saw Noah, she gets more than she bargained for. Turns out the house’s powers weren’t just a figment of a childish imagination. And someone is following Jocelyn. Is Jack still alive? And if he is, what kind of trouble is he in? The answer is revealed in a shocking twist that turns this story on its head and will send readers straight back to page 1 to read the book in a whole new light.
Uh, why is February so far away? Look at that cover! Read that synopsis!
I need this like right NOW!
The Vanishing Game is expected to be released on February 14th, 2012 by Bloomsbury USA.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    I'm fascinated by that cover with the juxtaposition of the houses — just adds to the overall creepy feel of the story. This one is definitely on my wishlist.

    I love thrillers and this looks really interesting, it reminds me kind of this movie alone in the dark except I'm sure it's less cheesy and more scary.
