Kind of Creepy

I'm reading this book right now (that I picked up randomly off the shelf at the book store when I was in a little bit of a "must shop to make self feel better and I want new books because mmmmmm books" stage) that is giving me a little bit of the heebie jeebies. (Or, however it is you're supposed to spell that creepy feeling.)

See, the book is set partly now(ish) and partly in the main character's high school years. Which seem to be set in the same time as my high school years.

All the pop culture references are familiar. And not in a "I've seen a movie about that" kind of way, but in a "holy smokes, I lived through that" kind of way.

And I've got to tell you, it's weird.

Weird, weird, weird.

When's the last time a book creeped you out and why?

(Unrelated note: I'm going away for a couple of days so I may not get to readin' your comments as quick as usual, but don't let that stop you from sayin' hi n stuff!)

You're not even going to tell us the title? Or are you that secretive at Spy Central, you're afraid of giving clues to your age?

Never mind - I think I did the necessary detective work on the sidebar.

McGone, I AM that secretive, we all are. It's part of our training.
Oh. You found it? ahem. nevermind.

Callalily, it's called Dedication and I picked it up because it was by the same authors as The Nanny Diaries, which I quite liked. :)
