My Selection for Waiting on Wednesday: Haven by Kristi Cook

It may be a stormy, snowy, icy, mess across the Midwest and the Northeast (like those adjectives?!), but that hasn't keep Waiting on Wednesday at bay! It's back--with a vengeance. It's a meme started by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Maybe you guys know about this one, but I just discovered it the other day. It's Haven by Kristi Cook. Check out the blurb from the author's site...

Violet McKenna isn’t a normal girl with normal teenage issues; she has more to contend with than most people could handle. Violet thought she was just crazy when she had a vivid vision of her dad’s murder. Her life started falling apart when her premonition came true. She’s had flashes of other events too–the problem was nobody believed her until she found a new school: Winterhaven.
At Winterhaven, Violet finally feels like she belongs. She quickly finds a close group friends and discovers that they too have psychic ‘gifts’—as do all the students at Winterhaven. But as soon as she feels settled she discovers the most intriguing and alluring boy she has ever met, and things quickly go awry. As the attraction between them grows, intense visions of the boy’s death start to haunt her. In her premonitions, the secret he is unwilling to share begins to reveal itself. And to Violet’s horror, she learns that their destinies are intertwined in a critical–and deadly–way.

Here's a little excerpt:

“You won’t lose me,” I said, taking a tentative step toward him.  “No matter what your secrets are, no matter how terrible you think they are, you won’t lose me.”
He reached for my shoulders and drew me against his chest.  “I’ll make sure to remind you that you said that, okay?  When you’re running away from me as fast as you can.”

Ooh...I don't know about you, but I want to know if this boy is hot enough to elicit such devotion...I shall see...anyone joining me?
