Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week pre-publication "can't wait to read" selection is:
Expected Release Date: February 23, 2016
“Statistically speaking, girls like me don’t come back when guys like Donald Jessup take us.”Um...this sounds SO good. I've been waiting for this release for a while so I'm super excited that the wait it infinitely shorter.
Julia knows she beat the odds. She escaped the kidnapper who hunted her in the woods for two terrifying nights that she can’t fully remember. Now it’s one year later, and a dead girl turns up in those same woods. The terrible memories resurface, leaving Julia in a stupor at awkward moments: in front of gorgeous Kellan MacDougall, for example.
At least Julia’s not alone. Her best friend, Liv, was in the woods, too. When Julia got caught, Liv ran away. Is Liv’s guilt over leaving Julia the reason she’s starving herself? Is hooking up with Shane Cuthbert, an addict with an explosive temper, Liv’s way of punishing herself for not having Julia’s back? As the devastating truth about Liv becomes clear, Julia realizes the one person she thinks she knows best—Liv—is the person she knows least of all. And that after the woods was just the beginning.
What are you "Waiting on?"
