Waiting on Wednesday: Possess

Possess by Gretchen McNeil

Release Date: August 23, 2011

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, by the cute son of a local police sergeant, and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Unfortunately for Bridget, it turns out the voices are demons – and Bridget has the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from.

Terrified to tell people about her new power, Bridget confides in a local priest who enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession. But just as she is starting to come to terms with her new power, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the demons' plan before someone close to her winds up dead – or worse, the human vessel of a demon king.

-I'm impressed by the cover, I think it's very cool. The cover is eerie and it reminds me of the woods which have always freaked me out. BTW it's being given away on Goodreads (I always enter these contests and never win). The idea of a teenage girl being an exorcist is extremely intriguing and I'll be salivating for this book to release!

What are you waiting on this week? Does this book sound original to you or similar to other paranormal books? (I wouldn't really know).
