Wishlist Wednesday #2

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
Hardcover, 372 pages
Published on September 29, 2011 by Putman Juvenile

The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago.

Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities.

The only real reason I chose this book is because I love the story of Jack the Ripper. I also watch shows on it if they are on and I have a computer game based on it. The Johnny Depp Movie... mmmmm Johnny Depp (drool :-P lol)

I also like really like the cover. This is what originally made me notice the book.

Have you ever read the book? If so what did you think of it??
