Waiting on Wednesday: Secret Society by Tom Dolby

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also.

My choice this week is Secret Societ by Tom Dolby. The cover is gorgeous and the premise sounds yummy good.

Secret Society by Tom Dolby

Secrets, secrets are no fun.Secrets, secrets hurt someone…
An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York’s wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.
They didn’t ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything. Even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown, and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they’re forced to get on the nape of their necks.
Once they’re part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It’s all perfect—until a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.
Tom Dolby makes his teen fiction debut with this riveting novel about a dangerous Society so secret that once you get in, you can never get out.

September 29, 2009. The countdown begins…

Also, a blurb has come in from bestselling young adult author Melissa de la Cruz:
“Lush, delicious, and decadent like the best New York novels, Secret Society combines Edith Wharton flair with Wes Anderson-style wit in an addictive, adventure-filled read. Get initiated now!”
