Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that highlights the books we can't wait to be released. This week,The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

Title: The Name of the Star
Author: Maureen Johnson
Series: Shades of London #1
Release Date: 29 September 2011
Summary from Goodreads:A modern-day thriller about Rory, an American high-school student who enrolls at a London boarding school for her junior year. Soon after her arrival, a series of murders begins to take place across the city—on the exact dates and in the exact style of Jack the Ripper. Rory’s ties to the killer bring her in contact with a secret paranormal branch of the British police, as they attempt to stop the mysterious killer.
Why I want it: I know, I read a fair bit about Jack the Ripper. But it's interesting, so I don't think I'll be breaking that habit soon. I read another book that has the same premise as this, ((Scared to Death, by Alan Gibbons)), and it will be interestingto see how this one compares.
