Waiting on Wednesday (53)





"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!





This week I'm waiting on a debut that's due out this month!


Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris
Publication Date: April 24, 2012

Synopsis:
Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed—as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn't possible, she knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her revival, and Ben's possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI agent father's files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something—but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what's right in front of her: Everything that's happened—the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben's sudden appearance in her life—points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she's going to need to uncover Ben's secrets—and keep from falling in love with him in the process.

From debut author Elizabeth Norris comes this shattering novel of one girl's fight to save herself, her world, and the boy she never saw coming.


Why I want it: To be honest, I'm just really intrigued by this book. I've reread the synopsis a few times, but feel like I won't be able to wrap my mind around what it's about until I read it. Also, Elizabeth is a debut author!

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

I featured this on my blog recently as a book that I just can't forget about and now that I have an eARC of this, I moved it very high on my tbr-pile, so I hope to get to it soon. Hope that you'll enjoy it! :)

Great pick! I've been wanting to read Unraveling as well, and it's been on the my to-covet list for AGES. I just love the premise, and I'm super excited to see how the book unfolds.

Sounds like a paranormal/contemporary mix. Lots of mystery, lots of excitement. I think I'd enjoy this roller coaster ride.
