Waiting on Wednesday is a way to share book we're excited for! Hosted by Breaking the Spine!
This week's pick is:
February 28, 2012
The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...
Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper—and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath.
Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.
Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with.
To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly—against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.
This one sounds really, really cool. I love acdemies and hot tutors.(It does not say that the tutor, Rath, is a hottie but I think that is assumed!)
There's not much in YA, to my knowledge, about reapers and Anubis. I can't wait to see what the author does with this!
