Waiting on Wednesday: Bleeding Violet

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today's book, Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves, is set to be released January 5, 2010.

Love can be a dangerous thing....

Hanna simply wants to be loved. With a head plagued by hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet stuffed with frilly, violet dresses, Hanna's tired of being the outcast, the weird girl, the freak. So she runs away to Portero, Texas in search of a new home.

But Portero is a stranger town than Hanna expects. As she tries to make a place for herself, she discovers dark secrets that would terrify any normal soul. Good thing for Hanna, she's far from normal. As this crazy girl meets an even crazier town, only two things are certain: Anything can happen and no one is safe.

From Goodreads

This book sounds very interesting. A girl with hallucinations that is being drugged to repress her gift? I'm there! I'm hoping that Hanna will be an in dependent kind of girl who faces down the "crazy" that she comes up against in the town of Portero. It kind of reminds me of the back story in My Soul to Take where she was locked up in the mental ward because she couldn't stop screaming (bean sidhes tend to do that). What really intrigues me about this little snippet is: a) What in her home life drives her to run? & b) Why does she run to Portero? Here's hoping it lives up to it's hype!
