My Pick This Week:
Book Title: Nearly Gone
Author: Elle Cosimano
Genres: YA, Mystery Thriller
Release Date: March 25, 2014
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.
The stark blackness. The condensation on her lips. The tension held in that slight gasp for breath. Her panicked yet serene expression. EVERYTHING about this cover that completely draws me in!
It doesn't hurt that the synopsis sounds amazing! It so unlike everything else I've been reading as of late. This will be the perfect book to break me out of the Dystopian loop I feel like I've been on lately.
Also, how awesome is the name Nearly!
