Waiting on Wednesday: All Unquiet Things

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.

This week's selection is All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab and it will be released All the Quiet Things CoverJanuary 12, 2010.

Carly: She was sweet. Smart. Self-destructive. She knew the secrets of Brighton Day School’s most privileged students. Secrets that got her killed.

Neily: Dumped by Carly for a notorious bad boy, Neily didn’t answer the phone call she made before she died. If he had, maybe he could have helped her. Now he can’t get the image of her lifeless body out of his mind.

Audrey: She’s the reason Carly got tangled up with Brighton’s fast crowd in the first place, and now she regrets it—especially since she’s convinced the police have put the wrong person in jail. Audrey thinks the murderer is someone at Brighton, and she wants Neily to help her find out who it is.

As reluctant allies Neily and Audrey dig into their shared past with Carly, her involvement with Brighton’s dark goings-on comes to light. But figuring out how Carly and her killer fit into the twisted drama will force Audrey and Neily to face hard truths about themselves and the girl they couldn’t save.
From Goodreads

There is something mesmerizing about this tale. It's got a draw too it that seems irresistible. There is no shortage of love triangles in today's YA novels, but this one seems special. Especially considering one of the participants is deceased. I am hoping that this novel will be told in alternating viewpoints as I tend to find lend themselves better to this sort of storyline. The characters sound tormented, add in the mystery of the real murderer, and I'm captivated. Come on January 12th!
