Waiting on Wednesday - Dead Silence by Kimberly Derting

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Dead Silence is book #4 of the Body Finder series.  As far as I know. it is the last book in this series (that makes me so sad if it's true).  Here's the summary (by Goodreads) - 

Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.

I know I've said it before but I just have to say it again...I think that Kimberly Derting is one of the most under-rated authors in the YA-universe.  She is like a gem for young readers and is perfect for those who want a book they can really get into without the excessive sex, language and violence.  If you are a parent, teacher or librarian and are looking for a series to satisfy a young reader, try either her Pledge series or the Body Finder.
