The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab
RELEASE DATE. October 9, 2012
PUBLISHER. Delacorte Books for Young Readers

SYNOPSIS. Caro Mitchell considers herself an only child—and she likes it that way. After all, her much older sister, Hannah, left home eight years ago, and Caro barely remembers her. So when Caro’s parents drop the bombshell news that Hannah is returning to live with them, Caro feels as if an interloper is crashing her family. To her, Hannah’s a total stranger, someone who haunts their home with her meek and withdrawn presence, and who refuses to talk about her life and why she went away. Caro can’t understand why her parents cut her sister so much slack, and why they’re not pushing for answers.

Unable to understand Hannah, Caro resorts to telling lies about her mysterious reappearance. But when those lies alienate Caro’s new boyfriend and put her on the outs with her friends and her parents, she seeks solace from an unexpected source. And when she unearths a clue about Hannah’s past—one that could save Hannah from the dark secret that possesses her—Caro begins to see her sister in a whole new light.

WHY I'M WAITING FOR THE OPPOSITE OF HALLELUJAH? I can’t wait what’s in store in this dark contemporary read. The cover really gives out the book an intriguing and eerie vibrance.
