The Unquiet
The Unquiet
From Goodreads
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 (again!) and hoping to stay well, Rinn settles into her new home and school. She refuses to be daunted by the fact that the previous owner hanged herself in Rinn's bedroom, or that 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? 


Why I Chose it:

I feel like lots of books have covers with girls underwater lately, but this one is really captivating to me.  It's creepy yet serene all at the same time.  It looks like she is sinking because her hair is floating upwards, yet she doesn't seem to be struggling at all.  I'm curious why it's called The Unquiet.  Guess I'll have to read to find out.  This book comes out July 17, 2012. 

Side note: It is nearly impossible to find out who the cover artists are for many books.  I think they should get more credit!  For those of you who do shelf candy posts...how do you find the cover artist?
