WoW: The Dead And Buried by Kim Harrington

"Waiting On" Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you highlight books you are anxiously waiting for.

My pick for this week will not be released until January 1st, 2013, but I love the cover so much and the story sounds so intriguing, I just had to pick it.

Goodreads description:

Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes. . . . But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things. Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.

Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house is haunted. Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school -- until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets. But is one of them a murderer?

Isn't this a haunting cover? There have only been a couple of ghost stories so far that I have enjoyed, and I think this one could be the next one in line. I love the idea of an angry ghost who seeks vengeance on the people who've wronged them. I am sure there will be a fairly long line of possible suspects for this murder. What could be the motive? Jealousy? Envy? We shall find out next January. I, for one, am already very excited!
