Waiting On Wednesday #30

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Summary via Goodreads:
There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.


I spy with my little eye... another beautiful dress! Admittedly I'm unused to seeing dresses so centered on covers, but in this particular case, I love it! Besides that, there's zombies in Something Strange and Deadly and a handsome inventor? I'm definitely excited for Something Strange and Deadly!

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard is published by HarperTeen, an imprint of HarperCollins, and its expected publication date is July 24, 2012.
