Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event brought to you by Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming books we can’t wait to read.
I was looking for a spooky book to feature this October and came across Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano.
Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano
Publication Date: March 25, 2014 from Kathy Dawson Books
Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.
Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother’s job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone’s skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn’t trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.
Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn’t figure it all out soon—she’ll be next. (source: Goodreads)
The cover and title got my attention, but the synopsis sounds amazing. The character’s name is Nearly, and I’m wondering why can she decipher the serial killer’s clues, and why are the police tracking her? I want to know!
What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?
