Waiting On Wednesday

Sponsored by "Breaking the Spine". This weeks can't wait to read selection is:

Here is my pick this week:

Old Magic by Marianne Curley
Release Date: December 22, 2009
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
400 pages

Synopsis taken from publishers site:

Jarrod Thornton is mesmerizing,
but Kate Warren doesn't know why.

The moment the new guy walks into the room, Kate senses something strange and intense about him. Something supernatural. Her instincts are proven correct a few minutes later when, bullied by his classmates, Jarrod unknowingly conjures up a freak thunderstorm inside their classroom.

Jarrod doesn't believe in the paranormal. When Kate tries to convince him that he has extraordinary powers that need to be harnessed, he only puts up with her "hocus pocus" notions because he finds her captivating. However, the dangerous, uncontrolled strengthening of his gift finally convinces Jarrod that he must take Kate's theories seriously. Together, they embark on a remarkable journey -- one which will unravel the mystery that has haunted Jarrod's family for generations and pit the teens against immense forces in a battle to undo the past and reshape the future.

I stumbled across this while browsing the publishing site and think it looks pretty good. Will be checking it out this winter.

Is this a reprint? I've read this book before, like about 5 years ago I think! It was pretty good, especially the characters
