Waiting on Wednesday [52] - Shadowlands by Kate Brian

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

Shadowlands by Kate Brian
Expected Publication Date: January 8th, 2013
Publisher: Hyperion Books for Children
Page Count: 336 pages
Shadowlands
Rory Miller had one chance to fight back and she took it. Rory survived… and the serial killer who attacked her escaped. Now that the infamous Steven Nell is on the loose, Rory must enter the witness protection with her father and sister, Darcy, leaving their friends and family without so much as a goodbye.

Starting over in a new town with only each other is unimaginable for Rory and Darcy. They were inseparable as children, but now they can barely stand each other. As the sisters settle in to Juniper Landing, a picturesque vacation island, it seems like their new home may be just the fresh start they need. They fall in with a group of beautiful, carefree teens and spend their days surfing, partying on the beach, and hiking into endless sunsets. But just as they’re starting to feel safe again, one of their new friends goes missing. Is it a coincidence? Or is the nightmare beginning all over again?
Why I Can't Wait: Soooooo I'm a big fan of mysterious books that involve murder and deception and all that good stuff. I'm pretty sure Brian will produce some awesomeness with this one. What do you think?

  9. I added this one a couple of weeks ago when I saw it on someone else's WoW. I don't know how I missed it before that because it sounds full of awesome. I love stories about sisters (me and my sis weren't close growing up but we are now, which is the opposite of this story, so I'm interested to see how that plays out) and serial killers fascinate me in a weird sort of way. Great pick! Thanks for sharing & for stopping by my WoW post. Happy Wednesday! :D

  36. Oh dang, I've seen this one before but haven't read its synopsis until now. It kind of reminds me of that movie with Amanda Seyfried, Gone, I think? Anyway, loved that movie so Shadow Lands definitely sounds like my kind of book!
