Gretchen McNeil's TEN Cover Reveal Scavenger Hunt!

I know why you're here...

Today is the last day in the scavenger hunt for Gretchen McNeil's cover reveal for TEN. Which also means that I have the last clue!

Here's the deal about TEN: In case you didn't already know this, I sorta have this thing for serial killers.  Okay, not a thing-thing, but I kinda dig books about them. And movies and TV shows.  (And, yes, I get how that makes me sound.)

So Gretchen has this book coming out called TEN, about ten kids trapped on an island with, you guessed it, a killer.  I adored her first book, POSSESS, but come on, this one is soooo right up my alley!

And if that didn't convince you, here's the official synopsis:

And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – three days on Henry Island at an exclusive house party. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their own reasons for wanting to be there, both of which involve Kamiak High’s most eligible bachelor, T.J. Fletcher. But what starts out as a fun-filled weekend turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly, people are dying and the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?


And for those of you keeping score, my clue for the scavenger hunt is: VIVIAN 

Your next step (and this is the last one, mind you!), is to head on over to Me, Myshelf, and I tomorrow (Friday, February 24th), where not only do you get to see the brand-spanking-new cover for TEN (!!!), but you'll also enter all the clues you've collected for your chance to win the one and only annotated copy of the galley pages for the book. (You can see all the official rules and start collecting all ten clues on Gretchen's blog.)

How. Cool. Is. That??? 

You can also add TEN to your Goodreads shelf here.
