Waiting On Wednesday (34)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Jekel Loves Hyde by Beth Fantaskey.

Jill Jekel has always obeyed her parents’ rules – especially the one about never opening the mysterious, old box in her father’s office. But when her dad is murdered, and her college savings disappear, she's tempted to peek inside, as the contents might be key to a lucrative chemistry scholarship.

To better her odds, Jill enlists the help of gorgeous, brooding Tristen Hyde, who has his own dark secrets locked away. As the team of Jekel and Hyde, they recreate experiments based on the classic novel, hoping not only to win a prize, but to save Tristen’s sanity. Maybe his life. But Jill’s accidental taste of a formula unleashes her darkest nature and compels her to risk everything – even Tristen’s love – just for the thrill of being… bad.

Maybe I'm the slowest person on earth but I just found out about the Jekel and Hyde concept, which is just amazing. That's why Jekel Loves Hyde intrigued me more and more these days. I love that there seem to everything: love, secrets, insanity, magic(?) and a little bit of chemistry; all mixed in a good and exciting way. The cover is just okay to me. I don't like the colour much. Well, at least the models look cool :)

Why Jekel loves Hyde? Find in answer on May 3rd, 2010.

Seriously I can't wait. Cannot wait :(

Sounds good! I liked the original Robert Louis Stevenson book, so it'll be interesting to see what the author does with these new characters and the plot.

I totally agree! This sounds soooo good, I love the modern twist on a classic!
