Waiting On Wednesday #42: Life After Theft by Aprilynne Pike

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Aprilynne Pike
Expected release date: April 30th, 2013
Published by: Harper Teen
Genre: Young Adult 


Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto. 

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so - in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history - he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.

Why I'm waiting on 'Life After Theft'...

I really loved Aprilynne Pike's Wing Series -
I will read anything by her now!

I love the twist...
"finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto."

This is suppose to be a modern-day retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy.
I have never read The Scarlet Pimpernel... but now I want to ;) And before Life After Theft is released!

Can't wait!!!
