Waiting on Wednesday: Wake Unto Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: Wake Unto Me
Author: Lisa Cach
Publisher: Speak
Date of Release: March 31, 2011 

Goodreads Description: A haunted castle, a handsome young man dead for four hundred years, one heck of a scary portrait of a witch, and a treasure hunt - not to mention a princess for a roommate! - all await 15 year old American girl Caitlyn Monahan when she earns a scholarship to a French boarding school. There are secrets behind the stone walls of Chateau de la Fortune, buried for centuries along with the mystery of who killed Raphael, the charming ghost who visits Caitlyn at night. But as Caitlyn unearths the history of the castle, nothing scares her as badly as the secret she learns about herself, and the reason she was chosen to come to the Fortune School. And nothing breaks her heart as badly as falling in love with a dead guy.

Why am I waiting? It feels like I've been waiting forever for Wake Unto Me! This is one of the debut novels I'm most excited about because it has so many elements that I love/want in a story. Haunted castle, hot guy (who also happens to be a ghost), a French setting - check, check and check! Plus, look at the cover ...
