Waiting on Wednesday (11)

For those who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme where we get to let everyone know about what books we are eagerly anticipating the release of. WoW is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Want to participate? Grab the logo on her page, post your own WoW entry on your blog, and leave your link on her blog!

This week there was a cover that caught my eye, and even though I'm not totally sold on the plot-line, it may turn out to be good! The name of the book is Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday. Check out the details below!

Author: Gemma Halliday
Release Date: October 11, 2011
Pages: 272
Summary: Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.

I'm thinking this one could be hit or miss, but seriously, that cover is all kinds of awesome, and I am kind of interested in how this will all play out-- will Hartley help the guy who broke her heart? Could be worth adding to the TBR!

So what is everyone else waiting on this week??
