Waiting on Wednesday: Vesper by Jeff Sampson

January 25th 2011 (Balzer + Bray / HarperCollins)
Hardcover, 304 pages

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?

(I'm intrigued by this one because I'm not quite sure what sort of creature Emily is! Sounds very unique!)

I like the sound of this one because it's not clear just what kind of paranormal it is! Leaves some mystery :)

I'm excited for this one too! I'm a more laid-back kind of person, like Emily, so I find the idea of growing steadily out of control intriguing. This seems like an unusual canon - I can't wait to see how it plays out! Great pick!
