Waiting on Wednesday: Vesper

Waiting on Wednesday is a Weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Book: Vesper: A Deviants Novel (Jeff Sampson)
Release Date: January 25th, 2011
Genre: Young Adult

Summary (From Goodreads):
Emily Webb is a geek—and happy that way. She’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for parties. And she definitely doesn’t start fights or flirt with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that … the same night a classmate—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing this. Every night, she gets wilder until it’s not just her personality that changes; she’s also becoming strong, fast, and utterly fearless. Has she been bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?

So, again, I have a mad case of cover-love. I think it is lovely - and it is what first caught my attention. I also was interested because Vesper reminded me of Vesper from James Bond (Casino Royale); which I loved. I know, that has nothing to do with the book. But, I always like to know what it is about books just first grabs peoples attention. Anyways, the description sounds really intriguing to me, as well, so I am definitely going to read this when it comes out in January!
