Waiting on Wednesday #39

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on!

Title: The Elementals
Author: Francesca Lia Block
Release Date: October 16th, 2012
Publisher: St. Martin's Press

The Elementals is on one level an intriguing coming-of-age novel about a young woman, Ariel Silverman, facing the challenges of her first years away at college in Berkeley, California, while her mother battles cancer at home in Los Angeles. But the book takes on deeper, stranger meanings when we realize that Ariel is haunted by the disappearance of her best friend, Jeni, who vanished without a trace a few years before, closing Ariel's heart and changing her forever. Ariel wonders if she will ever be fully alive, until she meets three mysterious, beautiful and seductive young people living in a strange old house in the Berkeley hills. Through them Ariel will unravel the mystery of her best friend's disappearance and face a chilling choice.

If you have never read a Francesca Lia Block book, I highly recommend you do so. She has many great ones to choose from and she's my favorite author, therefore I'm extremely excited that she has another book coming out this year!  

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?
