Waiting On Wednesday is a meme where you basically share an upcoming book that you’re excited to read. It’s hosted over at Breaking the Spine by Jill.
The book I’m waiting on today is: 17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma.
Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything.
With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.
First things first, let’s admire that cover for a bit. *drools* Being a graphic designer myself (not a very good one, albeit) I can totally appreciate all the awesome layering and effects that were done on the cover. I love all the different layering, especially with the text from what seems to be newspaper articles. It’s fantastically done! The cover designers outdid themselves with this one. Not only that, but I love the sound of this mystery. If the MC ends up in a hospital, then it totally means that this mystery is seriously dangerous. And that last line? Totally has me sold.
This book will be released on March 21st, 2013.
