Waiting on Wednesday - 77

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books are coming out.

Ten by Gretchen McNeil

And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school's most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off the from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn't scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine? (from GoodReads)

I'm pretty sure this is a retelling of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, which is why I'm so excited to read this! And Then There Were None is an awesome book, so I'm excited to see a modern version of this story. Ten will be released September 18, 2012.

Definitely checking this one out. I love Christie, but her books are a bit of a struggle for middle school readers.
