Waiting on Wednesday (20): The Shadow Girl by Jennifer Archer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

Jennifer Archer
Release Date:  April 9, 2013
by HarperTeen

Sometimes I forget for an hour or two that she’s with me. Sometimes I convince myself that she was only a dream. Or that I’m crazy.

For as long as Lily Winston can remember, she has never been alone. Iris, a shadowy figure who mimics Lily’s movements and whispers in her ear, is with her always—but invisible to the rest of the world. Iris is Lily’s secret.

But when Lily’s father is killed in a tragic accident, his cryptic final words suggest that he and Lily’s mother have been keeping secrets of their own. Suddenly, Iris begins pushing Lily more than ever, possessing her thoughts and urging her to put together the pieces of a strange puzzle her father left behind. As she searches for answers, Lily finds herself drawn to Ty Collier, a mysterious new boy in town. Together, Lily and Ty must untangle a web of deception to discover the truth about her family, Iris . . . and Lily’s own identity. (Cover and synopsis from Goodreads)

I hadn’t heard of this book until Tea Time with Epic Reads last week, but it sounds completely up my alley!

    I really like the sound of this Shadow Girl, too! Iris sounds pretty creepy. The only thing I'm concerned about is the prevalence of these type stories. Hopefully it doesn't get overused… right? Great pick!
