Sixteen-year-old Rinn Jacobs has secrets: One, she’s bipolar. Two, she killed her grandmother.After a suicide attempt, and now her parents' separation, Rinn and her mom move from California to the rural Ohio town where her mother grew up. Back on her medications and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home, undaunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom. At school, her classmates believe the school pool is haunted by Annaliese, a girl who drowned there. But when a reckless séance goes awry, and terrible things start happening to her new friends—yet not to her—Rinn is determined to find out why she can’t be "touched" by Annaliese...or if Annaliese even exists.With the help of Nate Brenner, the hunky “farmer boy” she’s rapidly falling for, Rinn devises a dangerous plan to uncover the truth. Soon reality and fantasy meld into one, till Rinn finds it nearly impossible to tell the difference. When a malevolent force threatens the lives of everyone she cares about--not to mention her own--she can't help wondering: who should she really be afraid of?
Whoooooo!!! Darkness! I know, I'm a little bit twisted, but you know me and my penchant for dark and mysterious novels. The Unquiet has an intriguing premise including ghosts, psychological trauma and family drama, but most of all, you can't quite grasp the entire story from the premise. That means there is more to discover, which is exciting in and of itself. Plus, I have to mention that I haven't read too many books involving ghosts or spirits. I don't know why. I know they're out there, but usually I feel as though they're too light and fluffy. This looks deliciously dark. And the cover. Yes please! What do you think, and what are you waiting on this week?
