Waiting on Wednesday #33 - Tighter by Adele Griffin.


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.



Tighter by Adele Griffin.
Publisher: Knopf books for Young Readers
Release date: May 10th 2011.

When 17-year-old Jamie arrives on the idyllic New England island of Little Bly to work as a summer au pair, she is stunned to learn of the horror that precedes her. Seeking the truth surrounding a young couple's tragic deaths, Jamie discovers that she herself looks shockingly like the dead girl—and that she has a disturbing ability to sense the two ghosts. Why is Jamie's connection to the couple so intense? What really happened last summer at Little Bly? As the secrets of the house wrap tighter and tighter around her, Jamie must navigate the increasingly blurred divide between the worlds of the living and the dead.

Brilliantly plotted, with startling twists, here is a thrilling page-turner from the award-winning Adele Griffin.


Doesn't this book sound all kinds of wonderful? A thrilling, chilling ghost story and lots of gothic goodness! I first heard of this book when it was featured on Small Review and put it straight on my wish list. I can't find a UK release date for Tighter, but if anyone knows, please tell me! In any case, I will be ordering a copy when it's released in the US because I cannot wait to read this one!


As always, let me know what you think of my choice, and share your WOW picks in comments! :)
