Deadly Cool by: Gemma Halliday
To be released: October 11th, 2011
Published by: HarperTEEN
Pages: 320

Hartley Grace Featherstone is having a very bad day. First she finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with the president of the Herbert Hoover High School Chastity Club. Then he's pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And if that weren't enough, now he's depending on Hartley to clear his name. Seriously? Not cool. But as much as Hartley wouldn't mind seeing him squirm, she knows he's innocent, and she's the only one who can help him. Along with her best friend, Sam, and the school's resident Bad Boy, Chase, Hartley starts investigating on her own. But as the dead bodies begin to pile up, the mystery deepens, the suspects multiply, and Hartley begins to fear that she may be the killer's next victim.

Ok personally, I think this sounds great. Does it remind me of a few other books? Yes, but every book does that. I love this cover, the girl is gorgeous. I love the font they used (yes I am very into fonts if you can't tell). Oh and can I say I love the girls name? Hartley Grace Featherstone, such a pretty and unique name. I love it. Anyways this is what I'm waiting for this Wednesday, what are you waiting for?(:
