After her older sister dies from an apparent suicide and her body is found hanging upside down by one toe from a tree, sixteen-year-old Sophie starts to hear the same voices that drove her sister to a psychotic break.
Why I'm Waiting: That tiny little synopsis is such a tease! AND GOD. LOOK AT THE COVER WOULD YOU? Combine that with the title, the teaser synopsis... *dies* It sounds delightfully terrifying and personally, I'm a big horror fan... So really, this whole package just sounds brilliant to me.

When your average, 16-year old loser, Scott Tyler, meets the beautiful and mysterious Aubrey Jones, he learns he's not so average after all. He's a 'Shifter'. And that means he has the power to undo any decision he's ever made. At first, he thinks the power to shift is pretty cool. But as his world starts to unravel around him he realises that each time he uses his power, it has consequences; terrible unforeseen consequences. Shifting is going to get him killed. In a world where everything can change with a thought, Scott has to decide where he stands.
Why I'm Waiting:
1. I love male protagonists
2. This "shifting" power sounds awesome and incredibly different which is nice (like jumping off of that movie, Jumper)
3. His power gives him consequences instead of making something easier for a change
Dammit, I'm just so curious about this! It sounds fascinating and I want to see how Scott Tyler is written when he meets Aubrey because you rarely come across a male protagonist with a prominant love story! Can't wait to get my hands on this :)
