OK, so this week's WoW pick is Luminous by Dawn Metcalf. Why? Holy moly, that cover! It is insanely beautiful! Click on the cover image above to fully appreciate it! **sigh** Just stunning.
So anyways, after recovering from my cover-love, I had to read the synopsis. All I have to say is-- "huh." Haha, I don't really know whether this is going to be a totally awesome, mind-blowing kind of book, or just really, really strange and confusing. (To be honest, the summary did confuse me.) But then I also read some ARC reviewers' opinions on it, and for the most part they were pretty positive.
Well, I will let you be the judge-- Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
As reality slips and time stands still, Consuela finds herself thrust into the world of the Flow. Removed from all she loves into this shifting world overlapping our own, Consuela quickly discovers she has the power to step out of her earthly skin and cloak herself in new ones-skins made from the world around her, crafted from water, fire, air. She is joined by other teens with extraordinary abilities, bound together to safeguard a world they can affect, but where they no longer belong.
When murder threatens to undo the Flow, the Watcher charges Consuela and elusive, attractive V to stop the killer. But the psychopath who threatens her new world may also hold the only key to Consuela's way home.
Aaaaand... if that intrigues you, here is some further information:

"The thing that I really loved and appreciated about this book the most is that it doesn't treat the reader with kid gloves... Luminous isn't afraid to challenge the reader and throw them off balance." ~Marg @ Clockwork Reverie
