Waiting on Wednesday: The Devil and Winnie Flynn by Micol Ostow

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:

The Devil and Winnie Flynn by Micol Ostow

Expected Release Date: October 13, 2015

Winnie Flynn doesn’t believe in ghosts. (Though she wouldn’t mind a visit from her mom, explaining why she took her own life.) When her mysterious aunt Maggie, a high-profile TV producer, recruits Winnie to spend a summer working as a production assistant on her current reality hit, Fantastic, Fearsome, she suddenly finds herself in the one place her mother would never go: New Jersey.

New Jersey’s famous Devil makes perfect fodder for Maggie’s show. But as the filming progresses, Winnie sees and hears things that make her think that the Devil might not be totally fake after all. Things that involve her and her family. Things about her mother’s death that might explain why she’s never met Aunt Maggie until now.

Winnie soon discovers her family’s history is deeply entwined with the Devil’s. If she’s going to make it out of the Pine Barrens alive, she might have to start believing in what her aunt is telling her. And, find out what she isn’t.

This seems to be my kind of book.  Dark, smart, and mysterious.  It’s told as an ongoing letter to a friend and includes illustrations, which is also  something that I find very intriguing.  Early buzz is good, and since I’ve been on a darker-YA kick lately, this seems like it might really help scratch that itch.

What are you waiting on this week?
