Waiting on Wednesday (11)

This week, I'm waiting on...

Mice by Gordon Reece. Shelley and her mom have been menaced long enough. Excused from high school where a trio of bullies nearly killed her, and still reeling from her parents' humiliating divorce, Shelley has retreated with her mother to the quiet of Honeysuckle Cottage in the countryside. Thinking their troubles are over, they revel in their cozy, secure life of gardening and books, hot chocolate and Brahms by the fire. But on the eve of Shelley's sixteenth birthday, an unwelcome guest disturbs their peace and something inside Shelley snaps. What happens next will shatter all their certainties-about their safety, their moral convictions, the limits of what they are willing to accept, and what they're capable of. 

Come on, you have to admit that this sounds completely exciting and chilling all at once. The synopsis is rather vague about this "unwelcome guest" that "shatters all their certainties", but I can't wait until next month to pick this up and find out!

To be honest, the thing that most gets me is the title!
