Waiting on Wednesday: Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis

This week's pre-publication, can't-wait-to-read is:

Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis

Pages: 320
Publisher: Harper Collins Canada (April, 2010)
Language: English

I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…

Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears Jessica whisper: I want to kill my Hearing dead, and kill me too if that’s what it takes, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own.

I can't find any cover for this one yet, but it sounds really intriguing!

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.

That sounds potentially amazing. I don't think I'd heard of it before, but that summary is definitely intriguing.
