Waiting on Wednesday (71)

Hi everyone! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!

This week's pick is:
The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee
July 17, 2012

Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother. 

After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications (again!) and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home and school. She refuses to be daunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom, or that her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists. 

With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of? 

Annaliese? Or herself?

This sounds so intense. I've really developed I liking for psychological thrillers over the past year and this one seems to fit that bill perfectly! I love not knowing whether what's going on is actually real or not. And who is this Nate Brenner, the farmer boy?!

Creepy goodness! (Though the "farmer boy" tag made me think of Princess Bride and Buttercup's Farm Boy) Excellent cover.

I really love the idea too of not knowing if something is real or not. That blur of reality is captivating because it is so real.
