[Waiting On Wednesday #13] Impostor (Variants #1) by Susanne Winnacker

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Impostor (Variants #1)
by Susanne Winnacker 
Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 11th 2013 by Razorbill/Penguin


Tessa is a Variant, able to absorb the DNA of anyone she touches and mimic their appearance. Shunned by her family, she’s spent the last two years training with the Forces with Extraordinary Abilities, a secret branch of the FBI.

When a serial killer rocks a small town in Oregon, Tessa is given a mission: she must impersonate Madison, a local teen, to find the killer before he strikes again.

Tessa hates everything about being an impostor—the stress, the danger, the deceit—but loves playing the role of a normal girl. As Madison, she finds friends, romance, and the kind of loving family she’d do anything to keep.

Amid action, suspense, and a ticking clock, this super-human comes to a very human conclusion: even a girl who can look like anyone struggles the most with being herself.

(X-men meets The Silence of the Lambs)

This is a great one. I love X-men and Silence of the Lambs although admit to never imagining them merged together. Very intriguing! Thank you for dropping by and following JC's Book Haven. I am a new follower to your blog now. :)

I've got mixed feelings about this one. I love the idea of the special branch of the FBI, and her Variant power is so cool. But the part about finding friends and romance makes me wary - I just hope it doesn't take away from the thrill and action of the murder mystery!

My WoW this week is Arclight by Josin L. McQuein!

X Men meets The Silence of the Lambs, I am so in! Thanks for sharing this one. It is definitely going on my tbr list. Happy reading!
