Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Crash
by Lisa McMann

hitting shelves from Simon Pulse on February 12, 2013

description: Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that.

What she can’t handle is the vision. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode... and nine body bags in the snow.

She has no idea why this is happening to her or if she’s going crazy. It hardly matters, because the visions are everywhere--on billboards, television screens, windows--and she’s the only one who can see them.

But it’s not until the vision starts coming more frequently, and revealing more clues, that Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it's someone she knows. Someone she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

My thoughts: I've loved almost every Lisa McMann book that I've read, and will continue to anticipate this author's work! From her Dreamcatcher series to her MG series The Unwanteds...she just has a way with great characters and eerie scenarios that really get under my skin. Crash sounds like a great story,...a bit of psychological creepiness!

  7. It's encouraging to heard such high praise for Lisa McMann because I myself have not yet read any of her books. I would like to now though! I see what you mean about eerie scenarios.
