Synopsis via Goodreads
Shy Celia Balaustine is befriended by a mysterious group of outliers called The Rosary at her new school, Suburban High. The Rosary exposes Celia to new experiences and ideas that help her break out of her shell. Soon though, Celia discovers something is not quite right at Suburban. Girls at the school begin having near fatal accidents on the eve of their sixteenth birthdays. Who is causing the accidents and why? Celia's own sixteenth birthday is fast approaching and she is inexorably drawn into an underground conflict between good and evil—the Kind and the Unkind—that is bubbling beneath Suburban High.
Okay so I actually really like this cover for some reason. At least most of it. The design around the girl's head looks a bit like a weird hat or shower cap the way they've done it. O_o Kinda awkward. Moving on though. This sounds like a mysterious and thrilling read and I hope it turns out to be as good as it sounds. What do you think? Does this sound like something you'd like to read?
