Waiting on Wednesday - Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne

Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
February 2nd 2012 from Putnam Juvenile

Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures in this fast-paced thriller

When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn’t expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she’s going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she’s come home. She’s even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she’s the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can’t trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her—and the rest of the world too.

I love a spooky read and this sounds like a chilling one! It does remind me a bit of Hex Hall, but this one sounds scarier and more sinister. I'm all over it! I heard Lisa McMann wrote the blurb for it....can't wait to see what she says.
