Waiting on Wednesday [82] - The Name of the Star


The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago.

Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

Reason: One word - Jack the Ripper! Okay, so that's three words. But seriously, Jack the Ripper has been immortalized for the gruesome crimes he committed in London. All of the different adaptations and media surrounding him is always interesting. This book definitely adds a unique twist with a modern feel. I'm interested to see how it pans out.

Cover Discussion: It's alright. It certainly makes me curious but it's not an instant fave.

Expected Release Date: September 29th
