Starting the week with a bang! Next month Harlequin Teen Australia will be publishing the YA debut novel of USA Bestselling Author, Nicola Marsh! I'm not sure whether Banish will be available for those of you in the US but all the Aussies should pick this one up as soon as it hits stores. I'm reading it right now and so far so good (review up soon!). As part of the blog tour, I have Nicola's movie castings for Banish! So these are Nicola's dream picks!

About The Book
Alyssa has one week to destroy her enemy, save her spirit... and save her soul.Badass Bookie xx
After her ex-boyfriend commits suicide and her mum’s alcoholism sparks yet another psychotic episode, seventeen-year-old Alyssa Wood flees her small hometown of Broadwater and heads to New York City to stay with her bohemian aunt — a Wicca High Priestess.
Alyssa revels in the anonymity of a big city and her new life. Her grades climb, she has a new best friend, and a new guy: the sexy geek Ronan — a saxophone player who prefers jazz to pop.
But her newfound peace is soon shattered when she sees a dead body in one of Ronan’s music clips — and she’s the only one who can see it. Worse still, Alyssa recognises the body that has been murdered a week forward!
Alyssa doesn’t believe in the supernatural...despite her family’s Wicca background. So how will she overcome evil when it’s closer than she thinks?
