Waiting on: The Murmurings by Carly Anne West

A teen girl starts hearing the same voices that drove her sister to commit suicide in this creepy, suspenseful novel.Everyone thinks Sophie’s sister, Nell, went crazy. After all, she heard strange voices that drove her to commit suicide. But Sophie doesn’t believe that Nell would take her own life, and she’s convinced that Nell’s doctor knows more than he’s letting on. As Sophie starts to piece together Nell’s last days, every lead ends in a web of lies. And the deeper Sophie digs, the more danger she’s in—because now she’s hearing the same haunting whispers. Sophie’s starting to think she’s going crazy too. Or worse, that maybe she’s not...
I confess, lovely readers, I am a chicken. Straight up, unabashedly chickensh*t. But here's my dilemma: I also love unreliable narrators. Most of whom are psychologically unhinged which is the BIGGEST KIND OF SCARY to me. Since I'm masochistic, I need to read this book. Plus, Halloween is coming up and I'm in the mood to be spooked. Too bad this book doesn't come out until March 5, 2013. Halloween will just have to come early next year.

And yes, I do start humming Call Me Maybe every time I look at the title. The name "Carly" is forever tainted to me.

(So comment, maybe?)
