Waiting on Wednesday #19

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Publisher (US): Simon Pulse
Release Date (US): 22nd February 2011
Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

This sounds great, very haunting! I love stories about strange teens who stand out amongst everybody else. Maybe it's because I am one and I feel connected to them in a way?! Spooky cover.



  1. Wow, this does sound good. I like how the synopsis doesn't give too much away, but gives *just* enough away to have me intrigued. Awesome pick. :)
