Waiting On: Absent by Katie Williams (16)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: Absent
Release Date: May 21st, 2013
Publisher: Chronicle Books
Forever is a long time to be stuck in high school.
Seventeen-year-old Paige is dead, the victim of a freak fall from the roof during Physics class. Now she’s a ghost, permanently bound to the grounds of her high school. It isn’t all bad, she can find out everyone’s secrets, which can be amusing—for a while. 
But then Paige hears something that isn’t amusing at all: the rumor spread by the most popular girl at school that her death wasn’t an accident—that she supposedly jumped on purpose. 
Paige is desperate to stop the gossip, but what can a ghost do? Then Paige discovers something amazing. She can possess living people when they think of her, and she can make them do almost anything. Maybe, just maybe, she can get inside the girl who’s responsible for the stories... and have a little fun turning the tables while she’s at it. 
Katie Williams’s second novel is a suspenseful page-turner full of eerie wit and a touch of the otherworldly. 

[Summary Source: Goodreads]
This book is REALL SHORT. Just 184 pages. And yet, it sounds amazing in a really creepy kind of way. I think I'm most curious to see if the author wrote a trickster, fun, light story or a nasty, dark, angry story. Because it really could go either way. Also, that cover is pretty awesome. So. Please may I have it?

What's new on your radar this week, my pretties? Let me know in the comments below!
