Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Welcome to the first Waiting on Wednesday here on my blog! For those of you who don’t know about Waiting on Wednesday, it is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, in which we highlight an upcoming book release we’re eagerly awaiting.
My selection for this Wednesday is The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong. This is part of Kelley’s “Darkest Powers” series. If you didn’t know before, Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and I really encourage you all to read this teen series along with her adult series “Women of The Otherworld” if you have not yet done so!
For those of you who follow me through Waiting on Wednesday, please add your link in the comments below so that I can kindly return the favor!

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya’s determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya’s home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts experiencing “bad vibes” about certain people and things. It doesn’t help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he’s interested in one special part of Maya’s anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.
