Eyecatcher: The Waking: Dreams of the Dead by Thomas Randall

The Waking: Dreams of the Dead
by Thomas Randall

Bloomsbury USA
ISBN: 9781599902500
Release Date: September 29, 2009

from the author's site:

Kara Foster thinks the hardest thing about moving to Japan will be fitting in as an outsider. But dark secrets are stirring at her new school. When Kara befriends Sakura, a fellow outsider whose rebellious nature sets her apart from the crowd, she learns that Sakura's sister was the victim of an unsolved murder on school grounds. And before long, terrible things begin to happen.

It starts with nightmares - strange, otherworldly dreams that wake Kara in terror every night. Then more students start turning up dead, with strange marks on their bodies. Is Sakura getting revenge on those she suspects are responsible for her sister's death? Or has her dead sister come back to take revenge for herself?

This first book in a frightening new trilogy will have teens glued to the page and scared to go to sleep.

why it caught my eye:

This is actually one that I found from a Publisher's Weekly review. We have a subscription at work and I love flipping through the reviews to see what they're talking about. I like to make my own opinions about books, but PW is great for letting me know about books that I probably would not have found on my own. I hoping to pick up a copy of this one later this week when I get paid. :)
