Waiting on Wednesday #81

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick is THE LAST ACADEMY by Anne Applegate.
It's going to be published on May 1st, 2013 by Point.
ISBN: 9780545502047 | pre-order: The Book Depository / Amazon US / Amazon UK / B&N

Goodreads Summary:
Curtis Sittenfeld's PREP meets THE SIXTH SENSE in this spine-tingling, unforgettable debut.

Camden Fisher arrives at boarding school haunted by a falling-out with her best friend back home. But the manicured grounds of Lethe Academy are like nothing Cam has ever known. There are gorgeous, preppy boys wielding tennis rackets, and circles of girls with secrets to spare. Only . . . something is not quite right. One of Cam's new friends mysteriously disappears, but the teachers don't seem too concerned. Cam wakes up to strangers in her room, who then melt into the night. She is suddenly plagued by odd memories, and senses there might be something dark and terrible brewing. But what? The answer will leave Cam--and readers--stunned and breathless, in this thrilling debut novel.

I only found out about this a couple of minutes ago by opening my Goodreads homepage and immediately fell in love with the pretty cover and intriguing synopsis. I still love boarding school settings and this one sounds wonderfully mysterious. Definitely a must-read for me next year. Too bad it's still so long until May!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
