Waiting On Wednesday #22: The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long

"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 :)

This week, I am waiting on... 

by Ruth Frances Long 
Release date: August 16th, 2012


A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense 
from a new voice in teen fiction

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. 

Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. 

Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. 

Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, 
and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice - and not just her own.

Why I'm waiting on... The Treachery of Beautiful Things? 

First of all, I am drooling over this stunning cover! I love when a bookcover ties in so perfectly with the summary - it's extra brownie points for what's to come once I read it! 

Why do these trees swallow her brother? Actually, HOW do these trees swallow her brother???
I'm hoping thinking that there are faeries running about in these woods...
What do you think? 

SO, what are you waiting on this week??? 
Can't wait to see what I'll be adding to my list ;)
