Description: Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures in this fast-paced thriller

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn’t expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange wak- ing visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she’s going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she’s come home. She’s even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can’t trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her—and the rest of the world too.

Rich, compelling writing will keep the pages turning in this riveting and tautly told psychological thriller.

This one sounds absolutely riveting. Plus, that cover is absurdly gorgeous. It's being billed as Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures... can I just have a copy of it now. Please?

I'm looking forward to this too. I love the cover. It's so rich and beautiful! The fact that Lisa McMann blurbed it is testament enough for me!

It sounds very creepy (dead animal bones are comforting? Hmmm), but good! I love the cover too, that red ribbon is such a great attention-grabber.
