This week I'm waiting for The Babysitter Murders by Janet Ruth Young.
Summary from Goodreads:
Everyone has weird thoughts sometimes. But for seventeen-year-old Dani Solomon, strange thoughts have taken over her life. She loves Alex, the little boy she babysits, more than anything. But one day, she has a vision of murdering him that's so gruesome, she can't get it out of her mind. In fact, Dani's convinced that she really will kill Alex. She confesses the thoughts to keep him safe, setting off a media frenzy that makes "Dani Death" the target of an extremist vigilante group.I think this sounds like a fascinating psychological story--a girl who's being overcome by these horrible thoughts tries to do the right thing by revealing that she's having problems, but this decision causes her to become a social pariah. Can't wait to read it!
Through the help of an uncoventional psychiatrist, Dani begins to heal her broken mind. But will it be too late? The people of her community want justice . . . and Dani's learning that some thoughts are better left unsaid.
The Babysitter Murders will be published on July 26, 2011 by Atheneum.
What are you waiting for?
Enjoy your reading!
