Waiting on Wednesday (99)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Dead To You by Lisa McMann

Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family. It's a miracle... at first. Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn't going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he'd be able to put the pieces back together. But there's something that's keeping his memory blocked. Something unspeakable...

I am unbelievably excited for this book! Lisa is one of my favorite authors! It sounds a lot like one of my favorite movies The Deep End of the Ocean and my work in progress was based on that movie so it has a very similar premise. So I've been looking forward to this one for a while now! Eeek!

Release Date: February 7, 2012.

  9. I haven't heard of this, but I'm so glad that you brought it to my attention! After finishing the Wake trilogy, I still have to read Cryer's Cross, and this sounds mysterious and intriguing too. (I'll also have to look up Deep End of the Ocean, sounds interesting!)
