Summary from GoodReads
Emily Webb is a geek. And she’s happy that way. Content hiding under hoodies and curling up to watch old horror flicks, she’s never been the kind of girl who sneaks out for midnight parties. And she’s definitely not the kind of girl who starts fights or flirts with other girls’ boyfriends. Until one night Emily finds herself doing exactly that . . . the same night one of her classmates—also named Emily—is found mysteriously murdered.

The thing is, Emily doesn’t know why she’s doing any of this. By day, she’s the same old boring Emily, but by night, she turns into a thrill seeker. With every nightfall, Emily gets wilder until it’s no longer just her personality that changes. Her body can do things it never could before: Emily is now strong, fast, and utterly fearless. And soon Emily realizes that she’s not just coming out of her shell . . . there’s something much bigger going on. Is she bewitched by the soul of the other, murdered Emily? Or is Emily Webb becoming something else entirely—something not human?

As Emily hunts for answers, she finds out that she’s not the only one this is happening to—some of her classmates are changing as well. Who is turning these teens into monsters—and how many people will they kill to get what they want?
Seriously looking forward to this one, it sounds amazing. It's sitting there on my shelf taunting me to read it, but I'm saving it for the Debut Author Challenge 2011. Just a couple more weeks thank goodness.


  1. Looks interesting! Very ingriguing plot. Yay for a debut author!

  2. I'm excited to read this one as well, can't wait to see what you think of it:)

  3. This really has me intrigued , I saw this a time or two today , so I added it to my list.

    My WOW

  4. I did read Fairest, and while I enjoyed being back in that world, for me it didn't measure up to Ella Enchanted. Have you read it, and if so, what did you think? I also liked The Two Princesses of Bamarre (probably my 2nd favorite Levine read).
