Waiting on Wednesday: The replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Published by Simon and Schuster in the UK January 2011

Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, Mackie comes from a world of tunnels and black, murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattoed princess. He is a replacement - left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago when it was stolen away by the fey. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood and consecrated ground, Mackie is slowly dying in the human world. Mackie would give anything just to be normal, to live quietly amongst humans, practice his bass guitar and spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem, where he must face down the dark creatures and find his rightful place - in our world, or theirs.

I can;t explain how excited I am about this book. I need it badly, really badly. I don't know if I'll be able to manage as long as January!!!

Argh...I literally had this book in my hand on Thursday, I processed it at the library, checked it out to myself...and I haven't seen it since! Hopefully it's in my car somewhere, because I've really been anxious to read this one. Gotta say, I think I like the US cover better.
