Waiting on Wednesday (#23)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's a weekly meme all about the books that are coming out soon that we really can't wait to read.

What I'm waiting for this week is easy-peasey.  All Out-In-2012 books.  And they are...
Dead to YouDead To You
Author: Lisa McMann
Published: 7th February 2012
Published By: Simon Pulse

Synopsis From Goodreads:
Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It's a miracle... at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn't going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he'd be able to put the pieces back together. But there's something that's keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable...
Tell me that doesn't sounds drop-dead amazing!  And isn't the cover just goreous??
The Wood Queen (The Iron Witch, #2)The Wood Queen
Series:The Iron Witch, Book Two
Author: Karen Mahoney
Published: 2nd February 2012
Published By: Corgi

Synopsis On Goodreads
I think the UK cover is different, but I love this one!  I adored The Iron Witch, so I can't wait to see where this story goes!
Gone, Gone, GoneGone, Gone, Gone
Author: Hannah Moskowitz
Published: 17th April 2012

Synopsis From Goodreads:
It's a year after 9/11. Sniper shootings throughout the D.C. area have everyone on edge, trying to make sense of the random acts of violence. Meanwhile, Craig and Lio are just trying to make sense of their lives.
Craig's crushing on quiet, distant Lio, and preoccupied with what it meant when Lio kissed him...and if he'll do it again...and if kissing Lio will help him finally get over his ex-boyfriend, Cody.
Lio feels most alive when he's with Craig. He forgets about his broken family, his dead brother, and the messed up world. But being with Craig means being vulnerable, and Lio will have to decide whether love is worth the risk.
This, in my opinion, sounds absolutely incredible. 
Well, that's what I'm a-waitin' for.
What are you waiting for this week?
