Waiting On Wednesday: Thorn Abbey by Nancy Ohlin

Thorn Abbey
Gone but not forgotten ...

Becca was the perfect girlfriend: smart, gorgeous, and loved by everyone at New England’s premier boarding school, Thorn Abbey. 

But Becca’s dead. And her boyfriend, Max, c
an’t get over his loss.

Then Tess transfers to Thorn Abbey. She’s shy and insecure—everything that Becca wasn’t. And despite her roommate’s
warnings, she falls for brooding Max.

Now Max finally has a reason to move on. Except, it won’t be easy.
Becca may be gone, but she’s not quite ready to let him go….

I love the cover for this book. I think it's so pretty, and for some reason the cover makes me think of Jane Eyre, and the title sounds mysterious ;) Also, the premise is great! I'm guessing Becca's probably a ghost, but I'm excited to see whether or not I'm right. What are you waiting on? :)
