Waiting on Wednesday #46

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

The Blessed by Tonya Hurley
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing (US)
Release Date: September 25th, 2012 (US)

Brooklyn teens Lucy, Cecelia and Agnes find themselves in the emergency room at Perpetual Help Hospital at the lowest point in their lives. Lucy, the superficial party girl; Cecelia, a drop out rock chick; and Agnes, a hopeless romantic. All rebels running from their lives and themselves, plagued by broken hearts and broken dreams. Enter Sebastian. Mysterious, compelling, seductive. He seems to bring each of them what they long for...

But in the battle for his heart, will they lose their souls?

--Goodreads summary

I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS. I used the US cover for this and the US release dates because I like them so much more than the UK one. The model on the cover looks like Dakota Fanning and it's just looks really fresh and different, no? The blue is so pretty! And that title! The Blessed is being published in the UK by Hodder on August 2nd, 2012. You can see the cover here--I like it a bit, but it's just a bit too paranormal-ish and would probably appeal more to people who like paranormal YA and if I'm honest, I don't think I'd pick it up if I saw it on the shelves, had I not previously heard of it.

But yeah...the plot sounds really cool and I really can't wait to get my hands on a copy.
