"Waiting On" Wednesday (#111) Breaker by Kat Ellis


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm picking:

Breaker by
Expected publication: May 24th 2016 by Running Press Kids

From Goodreads: 

Kyle Henry has a new name, a new school, and a new life—one without the shadow of the Bonebreaker hanging over him. It's been a year since his serial killer father's execution, and it finally looks like things are turning around for Kyle.

Until he recognizes the girl sitting in the back row in homeroom.

Naomi Steadman is immediately intrigued by Killdeer Academy's newcomer. She does not know he is the son of the man who murdered her mother. What she does know is she and Kyle have a connection with each other—and a spark that Kyle continues to back away from.
Soon after Kyle’s arrival, the death count on campus starts to rise. Someone is set on finishing what the Bonebreaker started, and murdering ghosts from the past may be the only thing that can stop the spree.

Told in alternating viewpoints, Kat Ellis’s tale of mystery and horror is full of broken bonds and new beginnings.

Why I'm Waiting:

Confession, I love watching true crime TV and I find serial killers fascinating. As a matter of fact I'm watching Investigation Discovery and feeding my addiction while writing this post. That being said, I'm kind of a sucker for books about serial killers too. Add in the fact that this book is by a small publisher and this book has my attention.
