Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that highlights books we are eagerly waiting for.The book I am waiting on this week is:
Watched by Sharde Richardson
Mikayla doesn’t want much—just to rock out to her favorite band, and keep a past she doesn’t remember buried. It’s not like she’s asking for a lot. But there’s only one tiny problem: She dies. And wakes up to find that all of Hell is after her.
To make matters worse, the town folk don’t look the same, and her classmates are a little dark in the eyes. There are murders, suicides, reckless skinny-dipping, gratuitous use of Q-tips, and newfound powers that Mikayla must learn to control.
Her past becomes present when a shape-shifter tells her what her true identity is, and how to keep the demons of Hell from nipping at her Converse. Through him she’ll discover who to trust, who to kill and how valuable her abilities are to the right beings. Because the evils of Hell aren’t staying down without a fight. Or without her soul.
From debut author ShardeRichardson comes a twisted tale that confronts the big questions: Does cherry lips gloss taste better when licked from another girl’s lips? Are Q-tips addictive? Can good win over evil? And when it matters, what side must we choose?
