Waiting on Wednesday: BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA by April Genevieve Tucholke

Jill 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. Oh, have you ever read a story and just had chills go down your spine and the hair stand on the back of your neck? Well, that is exactly what I felt when I read the synopsis for BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA. It immediately captured my attention and now I am left pining away for it like nobody's business.

BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
Publisher: Dial/Penguin

I prayed to Freddie about the Devil. I asked her to keep my hands out of his. I asked her to keep me safe from evil. But, for all my praying, the Devil still found me. He arrived on my front steps one summer and tried to take me back to Hell with him. 

Violet knows something is wrong with River, the crooked-smiling, coffee-loving liar renting the guesthouse behind her rotting mansion, where she lives alone with her twin brother. And Violet knows something is wrong with her town--kids hunting monsters in cemeteries, girls fainting outside old train tunnels, men cutting themselves in the town square.

But she doesn’t care.

Violet's grandmother had warned her about the Devil, had talked about him often, as if he were a best friend, or an old lover. But she never told Violet that the Devil could be a dark-haired boy in vintage clothes who takes naps with you in the sun and likes old movies and has a deep sense of vengeance.

Violet's already so knee-deep in love she can't see straight.

And that's just how River likes it.
