Eyecatcher: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

by Kelly Creagh
ISBN: 9781442402003
Release Date: August 31, 2010
from the author's site: 
Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.

why it caught my eye: 

What teenager hasn't gone through a Poe phase? I know I did. :) Heck my first pet rat was named Edgar. Thanks to my fascination with Poe (and I'm sure many others), I can't wait to get my hands on Nevermore. Plus you've just got to love that striking cover.
