Waiting on Wednesday: Freaksville by Kitty Keswick

Freaksville by Kitty Keswick
Publication Date: January 8th 2010



"I didn't go looking for trouble, but it found me anyway... Too young to die. I had to act. I had to think. My pulse knocked hard. My brain wouldn’t function. This was all my fault…mine. I’d brought danger to Gillie with my stupid freakish gifts. If I’d never followed Josh, none of this would have happened. We would be safe in our boring routine. Josh’s lips would never have brushed mine. I’d never have known his love. My heart wouldn’t feel crammed beyond capacity. We wouldn’t be trapped in Bridges Auditorium with two crazed teenage werewolves…. Even with my dying breath, I wouldn’t veer from my heart. Death by wolves, bring it on."



The first book in a brand new YA Paranormal Romance series from The Wild Rose Press. The story is told through the sixteen-year-old heroine’s blog.

High school is hard enough when you’re normal. There’s peer pressure, book reports, the in crowd and the enormous zit that has a life of its own. Having a family whose skeletons in the closet lean toward the paranormal is not a topper on anyone’s list. Sophomore Kasey Maxwell is busy juggling the typical teen angst. Add visions, ghosts and hairy four-legged monsters into the mix and you get FREAKSVILLE. It’s a wonder Kasey has survived.


Every woman in the Maxwell family has the gift of sight. A talent sixteen-year-old Kasey would gladly give up. All she wants is a normal life. Shopping and talking about boys with her best friend and long-time sidekick Gillie Godshall consume her days. Until Kasey has a vision about Josh Johnstone, the foreign exchange student from England. The vision leads her into new waters, a lead in a play, a haunted theater…and into the arms of the Josh. Yet, both Kasey and Josh have secrets lurking in dark corners. Can Kasey’s new romance survive FREAKSVILLE?

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event to spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
