Waiting on Wednesday: Hereafter

The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week's choice is based not only on the really cool blurb, but on an outstanding cover. I love book covers--could stare at them all day actually (don't judge me)--so when I see one that catches my eye, I have to check it out. My WoW pick this week is




Hereafter
By Tara Hudson
Pub date 6/7/2011

product description from goodreads.com

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their new-found happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.


I mean, come on...a beautiful cover like that and an enticing plot? Lucky for us June 7th is right around the corner!
