Waiting on Wednesday: Storm

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: KTeen (Kensington)
Publish Date: April 24, 2012
Genre: Paranormal
Summary: Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her.

Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all. The storm is coming . . .
I’ve wanted to read Storm since I read the summary a few months ago and have been eagerly anticipating a cover ever since. I was pleasantly surprised that cover features the four brooding Merrick boys instead of either a close-up of a girl’s face or a girl in a prom dress! This is a nice change that definitely makes Storm’s cover stand out in the YA market. What books are you waiting on?

Oh wow I've never heard of this one before! The main dude on the cover reminds me of Dean from Supernatural! (hot!)

I will be keeping a eye open for when this book is released. I love how the cover is different from all the other YA books coming out at the moment with mainly girls on them and the story sounds really interesting as well. Great WoW book choice.
