Oh my you guys! I was sent The Suburban Strange by Nathan Kotecki. I may have squealed a little *or a lot, depending on ones assessment of what accounts as A LOT or A LITTLE*

Release Date: 2013-09-10 (Paperback)
Shy Celia Balaustine is new to Suburban High, but a mysterious clique of students called the Rosary has befriended her. Celia soon discovers something is not quite right at Suburban. Girls at the school begin having near-fatal accidents on the eve of their sixteenth birthdays. As Celia’s own birthday approaches, she is drawn into an underground conflict between the Kind and the Unkind that bubbles beneath Suburban High. References to music, art, and intriguing underworld mythology make this series debut a page-turner.

Just a reminder, I usually post pics of the books I get right as I get them on to my facebook page so make sure to click over and LIKE the page – then you’ll see what books I get as I get them instead of waiting till I do a “book haul” video. I’ll still do haul videos every couple of weeks, too. So… yeah. All righty then.
