Waiting on Wednesday (September 9)

This was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's basically books that haven't been released yet, but that I can't wait for.

Other by Karen Kincy (it doesn't have a cover yet)

Seventeen-year-old Gwen hides a dangerous secret: she’s Other. Half-pooka, to be exact, thanks to the father she never met. Most Americans don’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for Others, especially not the small-town folks of Klikamuks, Washington. As if this isn’t bad enough, Gwen’s on the brink of revealing her true identity to her long-time boyfriend, Zack, but she’s scared he’ll lump her with the likes of bloodthirsty vampires and feral werewolves.

When a pack of werewolves chooses the national forest behind Gwen’s home as their new territory, the tensions in Klikamuks escalate-into murder. It soon becomes clear a serial killer is methodically slaying Others. The police turn a blind eye, leaving Gwen to find the killer before the killer finds her. As she hunts for clues, she uncovers more Others living nearby than she ever expected. Like Tavian, a sexy Japanese fox-spirit who rivals Zack and challenges her to embrace her Otherness. Gwen must struggle with her own conflicted identity, learn who she can trust, and-most importantly-stay alive.

The little picture/synopsis are from the author's website: www.karenkincy.com. I suggest going there to learn more about the series, and also to learn what a pooka is!

I looked up what a pooka is. Its a hobgoblin. I wonder if she turns into a scary looking goblin? Something added to my vocab. This sounds good. Great WoW!
