Waiting On Wednesday (21): Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers talk about the books they are most eager for! 

This Week's Pick: Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy #1) by Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: September 11th, 2012

Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

I know I've said this in my last two Waiting On Wednesday picks but man, what a cover! Not gorgeous in an outward way, but so so pretty. I love the cut out forms especially the gate, and the pink color sets it off so well. Very nice.

This book sounds extremely interesting. Lots of intrigue and mystery which I really enjoy, if done well. The characters look to be unique and smart, which is something I always appreciate in a novel. I haven't heard too many early reviews, but the once I have have been extremely postive! I can't wait to read the intriguing story behind the beautiful cover!
