Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!
What book am I excited to get my hands on this week? (Don't You) Forget About Me by Karen 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.
Why am I eagerly awaiting (Don't You) Forget About Me? Well, the synopsis is super intriguing and I know the author has a very particular kind of story telling that I really enjoyed, in all its weirdness, in her previous book, so I'm looking forward to being surprised!
What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
