Waiting on Wednesday (#11): Wink Poppy Midnight

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that hilights upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.

Title: Wink Poppy Midnight
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Publisher: Dial Books
Release Date: March 22, 2016

Description from Goodreads: The intrigue of THE VIRGIN SUICIDES and the "supernatural or not" question of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime.

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blonde bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

For fans of Holly Black, WE WERE LIARS, and THE RAVEN BOYS, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.

I've been seeing ARCs of WINK POPPY MIDNIGHT pop up in the blogger-sphere, and at first I was pretty indifferent about it. And then I started seeing people read and love the story. And then I read the description. And now I want to see just what the hype is about, so I am ready for WPM to hit shelves. My curiosity lights are just flickering like crazy.

Have any of you read this one, yet? If so, what were your thoughts on it?
