Waiting On Wednesday #5

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Social Suicide (Deadly Cool #2) by 

Twittercide [twit-er-sahyd]: the killing of one human being by another while the victim is in the act of tweeting.
Call me crazy, but I figured writing for the Herbert Hoover High Homepage would be a pretty sweet gig. Pad the resume for college applications, get a first look at the gossip column, spend some time ogling the paper's brooding bad-boy editor, Chase Erikson. But on my first big story, things went...a little south. What should have been a normal interview with Sydney Sanders turned into me discovering the Homecoming Queen-hopeful dead in her pool. Electrocuted while Tweeting. Now, in addition to developing a reputation as HHH's resident body finder, I'm stuck trying to prove that Sydney's death wasn't suicide.
I'm starting to long for the days when my biggest worry was whether the cafeteria was serving pizza sticks or Tuesday Tacos...
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen

Deadly Cool was amazeballs! Hartley Featherstone is quite the Veronica Mars. 
I love YA murder mysteries ( What can I say? Something about young people killing each other just gets me) and they are really hard to come by so when they do I snap up 'em. 
I mean what with the the entire population gobbling up paranormal romance which I can't and won't read anymore, there are few books left in the YA territory I actually look forward too. 
This book is one of them.  I mean, it can't get cooler than Twittercide
And the cover is a major improvement over Deadly Cool's weird Nina Dobrev-isque alien. 
This female reminds me a little of that new redhead from Transformers 4009. Rose-Huntingbottom or something.
