Waiting On Wednesday
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pick is (Don’t You) Forget About Me, by Kate Karyus Quinn.
Welcome to Gardnerville.
A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.
There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.
Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.
I read and loved her debut novel Another Little Piece earlier this year, and when I heard that she had a new book coming out in 2014, I got so excited! Then I read this synopsis, and it sounds like this book will be wonderfully spooky and twisty!
This won’t be out until next June, so unfortunately I have to wait a while to get my hands on a copy, but I’m really looking forward to it!
What are you waiting on this week?
