Darwen Arkwright and the Peregrine Pact by A.J. Hartley
Okay so the title itself is interesting and the cover is curious, but take a read through of the synopsis....
Description: Eleven-year-old Darwen Arkwright has spent his whole life in a tiny town in England. So when he is forced to move to Atlanta, Georgia, to live with his aunt, he knows things will be different-but what he finds there is beyond even his wildest imaginings!Darwen discovers an enchanting world through the old mirror hanging in his closet-a world that holds as many dangers as it does wonders. Scrobblers on motorbikes with nets big enough to fit a human boy. Gnashers with no eyes, but monstrous mouths full of teeth. Flittercrakes with bat-like bodies and the faces of men. Along with his new friends Rich and Alexandra, Darwen becomes entangled in an adventure and a mystery that involves the safety of his entire school. They soon realize that the creatures are after something in our world-something that only human children possess.
....pretty cool, right? Scheduled for release October 13th, 2011.

The interesting part about this one...it's actually a a Swedish thriller that's been translated to English. Suppose to be some pretty good stuff from the buzz I've heard and well the cover has its bit of creep factor there. Should be interesting. Scheduled release date is June 21st, 2011.
