Waiting on Wednesday: Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfeld

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone by Kat Rosenfeld

Expected Release Date: July 5, 2012

On the night of Becca’s high school graduation, the discovery of an unidentified dead girl left to bleed out on the side of a dirt road sends the town—and Becca—into a tailspin. Becca has always longed to break free from her small home town, but as the violence of the outside world creeps into her backyard, she withdraws and retreats inward, paralyzed for the first time in her life.

Short chapters detailing the last days of Amelia Anne Richardson’s life are intercut with Becca’s own coming-of-age summer, unfolding into the parallel stories of two young women struggling with self-identity and tense romantic relationships as the summer’s tumultuous events twist Becca closer and closer to the truth about Amelia’s murder.

(Summary via goodreads)

This looks delightfully creepy.  The plot looks engaging, and I’ve been on the lookout for a good mystery.  I’ve read a couple of good things about it (one pre-buzz review said that it was similar in tone to Nova Ren Suma’s Imaginary Girls, which you know I loved), and I’ve definitely seen it featured on other blogs.  I’m really looking forward to this one.

What are you waiting on this week?
